comment Is there any evidence that lisp actually is better than other languages at artificial intelligence?
@Persson: I'd argue it was somewhat by chance. If PASCAL was the next language to be made after FORTRAN, I have doubts that AI would have taken off with that. LISP was not just a "better candidate" than FORTRAN, it also happened (perhaps by chance!) to be a rather good candidate.
