👋 Introduction

Language has been an integral part of Human Evolution. Allowing us to share our ideas, thoughts, and feelings with each other, language has enabled us to build societies. If you are reading this right now, it means you have mastered a complex system of words, structure, and grammar to effectively communicate with others. But what about the field that has been enabling our machines to do the same? 🤖

Since the 1950s, Machine Learning has tried to enable machines with some of the cognitive senses that we have mastered. Of its several domains, Natural Language Processing witnesses great growth every year. 🗣️
