Nowadays, the world of Artificial Intelligence continuously poses researchers to face new challenges. Several contexts have been extensively studied, such as Deep Learning, which helped the research community sheds light on the intricate core of various problems. However, to tackle new challenges with only a single tool does not allow to study them from different points of views. In this short communication, we borrow the context of Knowledge Representation and Reasoning and the techniques therein involved, such as declarative formalism, and we highlight how the combination of Deep Learning with them helps researchers addressing new challenges in several different ways.
