New Theory Cracks Open the Black Box of Deep Learning | Quanta Magazine
A new idea called the “information bottleneck” is helping to explain the puzzling success of today’s artificial-intelligence algorithms — and might also explain how human brains learn.

sounds like he's just talking about autoencoders?

Covering space - Wikipedia
A covering space of X is a topological space C together with a continuous surjective map p: C -> X such that for every x ∈ X, there exists an open neighborhood U of x, such that p^−1(U) (the inverse image of U under p) is a union of disjoint open sets in C, each of which is mapped homeomorphically onto U by p.
