What is language?
According to the dictionary, "the function of expressing thought and communicating between humans, implemented by speaking or writing". But language is not limited to simple communication between people. Since the advent of computer science, it has been extended to human-machine communication with programmatic language. For the last ten years or so, it has taken a new step, with Natural Language Processing. It allows machines to imitate the way humans think and write, in order to generate, with artificial intelligence algorithms, texts that are truer than life. And it is exactly this technology that ChatGPT, the conversational agent that has been in the news lately, works with. But how does it work in practice? What's behind NLP? Follow the guide!
