Not compressing neural networks themselves, but rather using them to compress other things, in the sense of using neural nets to reconstruct signals (images, audio, video) with low error from a small bit-rate summary, especially in concert with existing noisy data transmission pipelines. Of course, we might try to do both at once and then think about minimum description length. that might be interesting.
