What is the difference between statistical AI and Classical AI with suitable examples?

  • $\begingroup$ Please add context to your question. What do you mean by "statistical AI" and "classical AI"? These are not conventional terms. With regards to the former, do you mean statistical learning? $\endgroup$ – The Pointer Feb 4 at 16:48

    $\begingroup$ @ThePointer Thanks for asking for clarification. This (along with voting up and down) is a very important thing that I would expect more community members to do. In any case, I think that this question had already been asked in the past, so I marked it as a duplicate. $\endgroup$ – nbro Feb 4 at 18:16

Machine learning techniques are usually using a lot of statistical approaches, like neural networks: a book like this one (Understanding Machine Learning: From Theory to Algorithms ISBN 978-1-107-05713-5) is full of mathematical equations.

Symbolic artificial intelligence, e.g. classical expert system approaches (with some knowledge base), is more related to logic: a book like that one (Artificial Beings: the Conscience of a Conscious Machine ISBN 978 1848211018) has mostly no complex equations, but simple ones.

An AI software can combine both approaches (in particular with meta-programming: programs that generate other programs; or even meta-rules) : the RefPerSys project tries to do so.

Artificial neural networks are somehow "working", but you cannot understand why.

Knowledge based systems are more explainable artificial intelligence.

    $\begingroup$ I don't know how to merge answers. I tend to believe it is a feature lacking in this website $\endgroup$ – Basile Starynkevitch Feb 4 at 18:09

    $\begingroup$ Only moderators can merge posts. Essentially, what will happen is that your answer will be moved to ai.stackexchange.com/q/8791/2444. Do you think it's a good idea? I think these are exact duplicate questions. $\endgroup$ – nbro Feb 4 at 18:09
