The symbolic-AI camp models knowledge as specific, explicitly-represented objective facts that get manipulated by formal, repeatable rules, and the sub-symbolic or connectionist camp is all about building systems that adapt, in hard-to-analyze ways, to perform actions and anticipate things in a way that seems to demonstrate knowledge but where the knowledge itself can’t easily be understood or extracted as a list of explicit facts or rules.
