Deep learning is a tool. Machine perception is a potential resultant ability, the ability of a machine to interpret data in a manner similar to humans. Being (very) loosely patterned after biological systems, deep neural networks (DNNs) are able to accomplish certain tasks, like image classification or playing Go, with apparent human-like and at times even super-human skill. With performance like that, it is easy to believe (i.e., extrapolate), that its behavior is human-like, or perhaps in some way better.
