I mentioned over a the Numenta forum that one perspective on deep neural networks views them as pattern based fuzzy logic.
In particular in higher dimension the dot product weighting function used in neural nets acts as a selective filter. Or you can say the dot product weighting produces a low magnitude output for most any random input and only a small number of select input vectors will produce a high magnitude output.
