Eager Future2 Common Lisp Library

Eager Future2 is a Common Lisp library that facilitates parallel computation. It is based on the idea of a “future” that acts as a “proxy” for a concurrently computed expression. Unlike the “lparallel” library that I had discussed in the last article, this library does not give us control over the number of “worker threads” […]

Calling Go Functions from Lisp – Part 2

In my earlier article Calling Go Functions from Lisp, I explained the steps for making calls to Go functions from another language, specifically LispWorks Lisp. Today, I want to give a slightly more  interesting example showing the use of Go channels through exported functions. Go is widely admired for its native support for concurrency via Goroutines. […]

Text Generation Using iLangGen Framework

The two primary areas in Natural Language processing are Natural Language Understanding and Natural Language Generation. The former is concerned with processing and making sense of natural language text, whereas the latter is concerned with synthesizing text, possibly from some deep representation. Both are fascinating and at the same time, challenging, areas of research. The […]
