Machines and people

I am new to this list. Among my chief reasons for an interest in Linux
is in relation to AI and the relationship of human intelligence to
machines such as computers.Consequently I want to establish a clear
understanding as to how the computers works.

In view of this could anybody tell me how we get from the stage of bits
to the letters of say the English language. In short how do bits,
Boolean Algebra lead to letters such as a,b,c,..etc.
I have studied the Turing machine. However I am still not clear
regarding this question. It appears that many learn higher level
computer languages such as Java yet cannot answer the more fundamental
