Answered by some veteran programmers, who are really interested in developing things from scratch. Although Codechef provides the choice of submitting solutions via LISP , i wonder if anyone ever did that.

@coder_voder Lisp was used for Artificial Intelligence(AI) until 1980s because it supports the implementation of software that computes with symbols very well. However today, the majority of AI projects use other languages, such as Java, C++, and Python; or mathematical packages like Matlab or R.

For more detailed description you can refer to these threads (why LISP, LISP in AI).
