SubL is a programming language for AI applications. It was developed at Cycorp and is based on the List Processing (LISP) paradigm, which makes it well-suited for symbolic reasoning tasks. SubL was designed to work with the Cyc knowledge base, allowing the development of complex logic and inference systems that can perform human-like reasoning across large amounts of structured information. As a specialized tool within the field of artificial intelligence research and development, SubL helps to build platforms that emulate cognitive processes by using rules, predicates, and first-order logic operations on extensive ontologies stored in Cyc-based systems.
