I'm not current on the latest in AI, but LISP is nearly always a good language to learn. Its very different from the C/Java world, and so it will crack open your brain and let new sunshine in.
For a professional developer, its important to learn to use a few languages that are very different. It takes a while, you don't want to be writing in the old style thinking when the tool is totally different.
Also, note that AI is a really broad field, and it has evolved over the past 40 years. Its not wise to make too many broad statements about it in general.

First of all, it's "Prolog" -- not "Prologue"...
