Google Aims to Make Google Voicemail Transcriptions Better

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.

I'm able to eat 25 Mcnuggets in a row and maintain total composure. It's important to note that I have zero useful skills and will be the third to perish once the country runs out of corn syrup and the end days begin. I have zero allegiances to any gaming company or platform and go where the games are. Anime is my domain and I am a lower tier noble with hopes of becoming a duke. Oh, and I kinda started the site and trick- I mean, convinced some friends into helping.
