GIGAMOS LANDS LISP MACHINE

By CBR Staff Writer

A $3.25m bid from Gigamos Holding Co Ltd of Montreal, Canada – to include receivables – topped those from Data General and Symbolics to land the assets of the Lowell, Massachusetts artificial intelligence systems company. Gigamos is one of the many artificial intelligence interests of Canada’s artificial genius Guy Monpetit, who also has holdings in Lisp Machine Canada, Logo Computer Systems, and Silicart – the chip design house where he is applying artificial intelligence techniques to the design of innovative chips (CI No 157). Monpetit is also a co-developer of the Logo educational language, and says he has known the folks at Lisp for years; most will be offered jobs.
