    Just out of curiosity I went to MITs OpenCourseWare and was looking aroudnw hen I found this piece of information.
    "For example, Lisp has become a language of choice for operating-system shell languages and for extension languages for editors and computer-aided design systems."

    This is very confusing or me, becuase I have heard form mutiple sources that one of the main implementations of Lisp was in the programming of robots and/or AI as well.

    LISP is very usefull when doing GA (Genetic Algorithms). You can construct "dynamic" programs with LISP and GA. Take a look on internet.

    I've never used it before but from what I understand it's a simple language that is easily extendable and embedded so that's why it's used as an extension language.
    So much to learn, so little time.
