Problems with Deep Learning

I recently replied to a conversation on the /r/Anrdoid subreddit (of all places) on the topic of Deep Learning. The main question was on the topic of deep learning (DL) being the future of artificial intelligence, or was it a popular fad that was reaching its saturation point. Below is the post in its entirety (with a little bit of initial exposition) to explain my point. I also highly recommend scrolling to the bottom and checking out the Further Reading section to explore the conversations between Gary Marcus and Tom Dietterich to explore the debate more in depth.
