THE LESSER-KNOWN PROGRAMMING LANGUAGES #2: RENE
Named after the famous French philosopher and mathematician Rene DesCartes,
RENE is a language used for artificial intelligence. The language is being
developed at the Chicago Center of Machine Politics and Programming under a
grant from the Jane Byrne Victory Fund. A spokesman described the language
as "Just as great as dis [sic] city of ours."
The center is very pleased with progress to date. They say they have almost
succeeded in getting a VAX to think. However, sources inside the
organization say that each time the machine fails to think it ceases to exist.
