A (not written in Common Lisp) Knowledge Representation & Reasoning System. PowerLoom is implemented in stella that can be translated into Lisp, C++ and Java and therefore available in Common-Lisp version. It is a successor to LOOM. As Wikipedia article claims, LOOM could be used as a deductive layer that overlays an ordinary CLOS network so that users can obtain many of the benefits of using Loom without impacting the function or performance of their CLOS-based applications. See Retrospective of Loom and references therein for details.
