Programming languages have had a crucial impact on the development of the artificial intelligence (AI) branch of computer science for at least two reasons. First, they allow convenient implementation and modification of programs that demonstrate and test AI ideas. Second, they provide vehicles of thought and they allow the user to concentrate on higher level concepts. Frequently, new ideas in AI are accompanied by a new language in which it is natural to apply these ideas.
