NLP for short, is a domain in which machines transform rigorous logic based on ones and zeros into our messy and procedural-based language. NLP is a bridge to how humans and machines might be able to communicate some day in the future. Today’s post will conduct a series of problems faced when trying to break down language into binary code.

How language was invented

It’s probably a good thing starting point to understand how we got to where we are from an evolutionary standpoint. Our survival is accredited because we have thumbs, but more importantly in this context because we have language. We always…

For decades upon centuries we have relinquished ourselves from the playful idea that robots are here to replace us. Every time we doubt its potential; we end up being disproven by its superiority.

Not only are we seeing AI gradually becoming more and more powerful in terms of research, but we are also seeing more and more automation in factories — which suggest a trajectory towards replacement. Humans still provide an important building block when it comes to adaptation & self-awareness, but for how long?

The distinction between automation and adaptation

Initially robots were pre-built water streams for electricity to pass through, all controlled rigorously by…

This is a post suggesting that the effort you put in versus the output you manage to get done. Not perplexing this idea is a challenge of its own which is the reason I’ve included some practical examples. I’ll try to convey today’s topic in as a succinct manner as possible — but it’s still up to the reader to make sure he/she understands.

Effort Vs Output

You’ve all heard the success stories about the overworking entrepreneurs giving up their soul for their work, spending 16 hours a day with no time for other deeds. The truth is usually disconveyed to portray an…

This is an introductory post for those looking to better grasp what the terminology AI means. It’s a complementary guide to rehearse some basic math needed as well as walking through popular topics within the scene. Later on I plan to walk through the basics of neural networks which is the fundamental backbone of AI.

History vs Today

AI itself is an alternative to what we’ve been mainly relying on. Since computers shaped our world we’ve been relying on algorithms to empower our daily lives. An algorithm could be as simple as counting to 100 but multiply by 2 each time a prime…

I write about AI-related topics and publish on the weekends. I’m interested in empowering people towards having an impact as the optimal way of getting there.
