JPEG is an image file. It is highly compressed 8 Bit File which is a ready to use image file and stores 16 million worth of color information. 

On the other hand, RAW is not an image. RAW is a data directly from sensor and since it is not an image file, it requires specialized software to render the data and show you an image. RAW is a 12 or 14 Bit file. While an 8 Bit JPEG stored 16 million worth color information; a 12 Bit RAW file stores around 68 Billion Color information. 

Jassi also goes on to demonstrate it by processing both a JPEG and a RAW file. Watch the full video to know in detail
