Lisp is an efficient prototyping tool and good at tackling problems. Lisp was used for AI in the 1980s.  Following are some reasons due to which Lisp was used for AI-

  1. Supports symbolic programming while old was based only on symbols.
  2.  It doesn't distinguish between codes and data which makes this language powerful than others. 
  3.  It is more extensible than other programming languages.
