Lush is the direct descendent of the SN and TL3 systems. SN was originally developed by Yann LeCun and Leon Bottou in 1987 as the front-end of a neural network simulator. Lush was brought to you by the same people who brought you DjVu.
Various incarnations of SN/Lush have been developed continuously since 1987, some of which were sold commercially by Neuristique S.A. in France until 2001. The system eventually grew into a full-fledged prototyping and development environment. Neuristique released a GPLed version of the Lisp interpreter part of SN in 2000. A version of SN was developed at AT&T Bell Laboratories between 1988 and 1996, and at AT&T Labs between 1996 and 2001. AT&T released their code under the GPL in 2001.
Transforming the various incarnations of SN into Lush was done at the NEC Research Institute by Leon Bottou, Yann LeCun, and Jie Huang Fu.
