For years, I have been saying that Erlang is a perfect language for 
certain types of AI applications. From self-modifying code for the 
sadomasochistic programmers in us to functions returning funs. With the 
thread on (Prolog + LISP + Erlang) with integration issues versus C++, I 
am happy to say that it is slowly happening... At the ACM SIGPLAN Erlang 
workshop in Tallinn, ERESYE will be presented. It stands for Artificial 
Intelligence in Erlang Programs. Even more interesting, however, is the 
fact that the IT University in  (A part of Chalmers) has now adopted 
Erlang over more classical AI languages (LISP, Prolog, etc) as a tool to 
teach the subject, with very interesting labs and projects in the 
pipeline. About time, if you ask me...
