      In principle, any human language 🙂

      What I am doing the most is translating from one language into another (what “Google Translate” does, yes, using maths!) You can teach a computer to translate between any two languages without knowing anything about them!
      However, you have to have some already translated texts in those languages to give it to the computer to learn.

      And, there are many more stuff you can do, for example computers can tell you which text is positive and which is negative, or what a text is about, or whether the text is offensive, etc. (these things work quite well in English, for other languages it depends).
