Did you understand the above binary code? If yes, then you’re a computer. If no, then you’re a Human. 🙂
I know it’s a difficult task for us to understand binary code just like computers because binary code is a Machine Understandable Language. Likewise, even computers don’t understand human language. So, how to make computers understand human language? The answer is Natural Language Processing. With the help of NLP, we can teach computers to understand Human Language.
These days NLP is getting a lot of attention, with the launch of Github’s Copilot, which was developed using OpenAI’s GPT-3 language model.
