Advances in the field of deep learning have motivated a flurry of research into the application of neural networks to wavefront sensing for adaptive optics. This paper gives an overview of current research in this area, highlighting new methods in deep learning that wavefront sensing stands to improve from. Finally we discuss future endeavours and speculate on how deep learning is expected to impact the field of wavefront sensing.
