Abstract: The paper gives a description of a comparative study of two learning systems based on symbolic and subsymbolic learning. The two systems' performance was analyzed using the overall empirical error rate. The performance was determined for individual stages in a multi-stage knowledge acquisition process, and learning curves were produced. The comparison was conducted using the same collection of 332 examples of optimal (minimum weight) designs of wind bracings in steel skeleton structures of tall buildings.
