I've implemented a few algorithms from this book by request of some
Haskellers students during my 2017 AI course :)


I wasn't very experienced with Haskell by then, so those can be
certainly improved. I was planning to revisit those codes and create a
repo to port the codes at
http://aima.cs.berkeley.edu/python/readme.html in my free time.  But
this free time never happened :(  I'll probably have some spare time
in the following weeks, if you want to, we can collaborate on this.
