Microsoft today revealed that it has made some under-the-hood improvements to Bing voice search for the Windows Phone platform.
The updates take advantage of advances in Deep Neural Networks technology, which helps computers mimic the behavior of neurons. Microsoft says the result is voice recognition that is twice as fast and results that are 15% more accurate. The improved Bing search is being rolled out in waves.
Microsoft said that the improvements carry over to other apps, such as text or email messages, which will be better at transcribing dictated content.
