// Abstract ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

fizz is an experimental language and runtime environment for the exploration of cognitive architectures and combined Machine Learning (ML) and Machine Reasoning (MR) solutions. It is based primarily on symbolic programming and fuzzy formal logic and it features a distributed (eventually), concurrent, asynchronous and responsive inference engine.

// Samples -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

calc.fizz A simple 4 operations calculator (which can deal with a single variable)
chicken.fizz A chicken farmer also has some cows for a total of 30 animals, and the animals have 74 legs in all. How many chickens does the farmer have?
coloring.fizz Solves the classic coloring adjacent planar regions problem
english.fizz Tests or makes simple English sentences
factorial.fizz Calculates the factorial of a number

// Last changes ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Additions:
- new primitives: str.trim.head, str.trim.tail, str.tail, str.head, lst.incl, lst.excl
lst.join, lst.init, sym.cmp, sim, is.even, is.odd, gid.make
- new samples: fibonacci.fizz irl2asm.fizz linkg.fizz
- new terms: guid
- new classes: MRKCSBFStore, MRKCCSVStore, FZZCLGRProcessor
- new constraints: lst.incl, lst.excl, is.guid, is.even, is.odd
Changes: - modified primitives: lst.remove, str.trim, lst.length, fzz.lst, guid.str
- modified commands: /peek, /poke, /tells, /knows
- modified terms: binary, symbol
Bug fixes: - console command load was crashing
- constraint is.string was testing for a variable to be bound to a symbol
- primitive str.swap in some condition was repeating part of the tail of the string where the replacement was made
- primitive add was returning 0 when used with an unsigned number as the first term and a negative number as the second term (e.g. add(23u,-18,:v))
- string terms with control characters were not rendered properly when they are embedded in other terms

// Future work ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

- More ML constructs (e.g. k-means clustering) - Completed distributed infering
- Depth-first solver - Some examples of cognitive architectures implementation
- More support for NLP/NLU - More tutorials/examples
- Performance improvement - Public SDK (for primitives, elementals developments)
