Quick! Raise your hand if you actually use Google Voice. Ok, there aren't as many of us as I'd like, but it's a cool little service that Google provides for free. As part of that service, voicemail's within Google Voice come with text transcripts for quick reads when you aren't able to listen to the voicemail message.
It's good in theory, but the results are laughably bad at time. Well folks, Google has been hard at work with the help of users who agreed to participate in a data collection program to improve transcriptions withing Google Voice and Project Fi. Apparently, they have reduced errors by 49% using a "long short-term memory deep recurrent neural network. Don't know exactly how it works, but users will benefit from the upgrade immediately without having to change anything.
