I appreciate very much your response sir.
I'm very interested in studying the material on your course's website,  
as well as the links kindly given in the other responses, since in the  
survey I'm making, besides citing and describing the uses of Haskell  
in AI, I should also elaborate  on the advantages that Haskell has as  
a language for AI, some of which you mentioned already.

I'm excited doing this research about Haskell, because it seems that  
the faculty members in the CS department I attend are considering  
introducing Haskell to the AI course offered there, which for a long  
time has been stuck to using imperative languages.

Thank you very much again,

Christos Chryssochoidis
