What is lychee.js?

The lychee.js Engine is a peer-to-peer self-improving Artificial Intelligence that can write, debug, analyze, improve and understand software (both design and code).

It aims to deliver Total Automation through Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning techniques, in every possible way.

The language used is only ES2016+. Its unique platform adapters concept allows cross-compilation to pretty much any platform there is; from Arduinos and Satellites to R/C cars and Desktop, Server or Router systems.

The Engine is fully isomorphic and peer-to-peer, so there is no limit in where it can run and whom it can talk to.

Try out Examples


As the lychee.js Engine covers a variety of systems, implementations and applications, it is not so easy to describe what "only itself" can achieve.

Our AI meanwhile is able to control satellites, R/C cars, take part in the Starcraft AI competition, automate homes, drive real race cars, automate network traffic, scrape and learn from wikipedia, exchange knowledge with other AIs or just analyze and learn from user instructions in applications.

Here is the selected list of features that the upstream lychee.js Project itself is able to deliver; excluding learned behaviours and features of third-party libraries and projects:
