atomese is an actively used programming language. Atomese was originally intended to be a language for knowledge representation (KR): that is, a way of encoding facts and hypothesis, in a machine-readable way, such that the knowledge can be manipulated, data-mined, reasoned with. This language subset was vaguely inspired by Prolog and Datalog. More correctly, it was constructed by layering concepts from mathematical logic onto a graph database: representing logical, symbolic statements as graphs.

Example code from the web:
(define find-animals (BindLink ;; The variable to be bound (VariableNode "$var") ;; The pattern to be searched for (InheritanceLink (VariableNode "$var") (ConceptNode "animal") ) ;; The value to be returned. (VariableNode "$var") ) ) ;; Run the above pattern (cog-bind find-animals)
