GOFAI vs non-GOFAI[edit]

Is there a reliable source for the following sentence? (I have removed it as it strikes me as wrong):

Often, GOFAI(R) is used to distinguish systems that do not employ connectionist or statistical machine learning algorithms, which have come to play a major role in AI, robotics and computer vision since the late-1990s.

I understand the defining feature of GOFAI to be the use of symbolic representations, not the use of statistics or connectionist architectures. So decision tree learning is GOFAI and support vector machines are not although both are statistical machine learning. I believe there are some connectionist architectures where the elements are logical propositions which would make them GOFAI. Pgr94 (talk) 11:20, 26 July 2008 (UTC)
