I've recently been working on a project to train very large neural networks with a bunch of colleagues.  In addition to building infrastructure to train very large networks, we've been working to apply them to various application domains.  As part of that work, we've been collaborating with +Vincent Vanhoucke and other members of the speech team at Google to use deep networks in speech recognition.   The blog post linked below gives some details about the system.  

When you use the voice recognition on your Android phone, you're using the results of this collaboration.

We're also applying these networks to other application domains, like image recognition, language modeling and machine translation.  You can read more about our use of these kinds of networks for image recognition here:
