Google Cuts Transcription Errors by 49% with Neural Networks
- The improvements are due to an artificial intelligence technique called “long short-term memory deep recurrent neural networks.”
- Part of what made the 49 percent reduction in transcription errors possible was better data. Many Google Voice users provided their voicemails to Google for study.
- Recurrent neural networks are great for identifying sequential data — like that minute-long voicemail your mother left you.
