Looking for Lisp consultant

Dear fellow Lisp programmers

I am a researcher at the Sony Computer Science Laboratories Paris, and together with the VUB Artificial Intelligence Laboratory in Brussels we have developed an open source framework in Common Lisp for conducting experiments on language evolution (see https://gitlab.ai.vub.ac.be/ehai/babel-core <https://gitlab.ai.vub.ac.be/ehai/babel-core> and https://emergent-languages.org/ <https://emergent-languages.org/>) under the Apache 2.0 license. One of the systems in this framework is Fluid Construction Grammar, a platform for developing natural language grammars for parsing and generation. We use LispWorks for our development, but also ensure compatibility with sbcl.

I am currently looking for a Lisp consultant who can help us out for developing in the first place a few free-to-use apps, and if the collaboration is successful, perhaps work on a more ambitious project on refactoring the code, developing additional tools, and reviving some art-science projects we’ve done in the past.

The app for which I am currently looking a consultant involves a ready-to-use editor for Fluid Construction Grammar: we often organise ateliers for teaching students how to write grammars in Fluid Construction Grammar, but we always lose time on getting people to install Lisp + other dependencies. We would therefore like to have an editor that already has an image of our software working. I created one myself using LispWorks 7.0 for Mac (which you can find here: https://github.com/EvolutionaryLinguisticsAssociation/Babel2/wiki/FCG-Editor <https://github.com/EvolutionaryLinguisticsAssociation/Babel2/wiki/FCG-Editor>) but it has several bugs/shortcomings and we would like one for supporting multiple platforms.

You can work from distance for this project, but we prefer consultants that are sufficiently close to Paris, France for also being able to meet in person (especially if we move to more ambitious projects).

If you are interested, you can contact me directly at remi.vantrijp at sony.com or remi.vantrijp at gmail.com.

Kind regards,
