General Development Todd Blanchard has just released ObjectiveCLIPS (), a new open source project for Cocoa development on Mac OS X. ObjectiveCLIPS combine Cocoa and Core Data together with CLIPS (the original NASA's artificial intelligence engine) and F-Script, a high-level scripting language for Cocoa. Now, Cocoa developers can design rule-based applications around their Core Data object models. The inference engine can reason about rules and apply them when needed. ObjectiveCLIPS is easily embeddable in applications.

CLIPS is not CLISP. CLIPS is (judging from its web site) a rule-based AI engine quite comparable to Prolog, but with extensions for procedural or object-oriented rules.

<p>And CLIPS uses a LISP syntax. Apperently they wanted to emplement a production system in LISP, but because of the cost of really good LISP tools (Allegro is expensive, but very good!) and because of the difficulty of integrating LISP code with other languages, they decited to write the production system in C, but apperently they kept the LISP syntax.</p>
<p>I bet if they were implementing this today, they wouldn't have nearly as many problems, as many LISP environments have better support for integrating with other languages today than in the past.</p>
