Some reflections on AI programming (coffee break history)

LISP and AI programming Lisp was conceived of as a language for symbolic computation and became the main “AI” language, especially for expert systems, NLP and other types of Pattern Directed Inference Systems. AI, at the time when the first LISP was implemented (John McCarthy 1960), was very different from the AI that is in… Read More Some reflections on AI programming (coffee break history)

Parallella LISP – the runtime environment

This series of blog posts describes the Parrallella-LISP source code and how to build applications requiring a combination of symbolic and numeric computation. To this end, two example applications will also be blogged about. The first application represents the meaning of documents with vector semantics and the second, extracts contours from binary images. If you… Read More Parallella LISP – the runtime environment
