Why can't it be both? Natural language processing, knowledge
representation, machine learning, robotics, information retrieval, data
mining and rule based technologies have all prospered from looking at
hybrid techniques. The statistical versus symbolic divide was maybe
interesting to AI researchers twenty years ago, but it's a red herring

The SW effort has a penchant today for symbolic techniques (particularly
description logics); we'll see how long that lasts until someone comes
along and gets a result using probabilities in combination with the
symbolic models of TMs and RDF.
