Proposal: Artificial Intelligence
"AI" questions are already on-topic on several sites. Engineering questions about tools like TensorFlow, Torch, etc. are on topic on Stack Overflow. In fact Stack Overflow is the site that the creators of many of those tools direct people to ask their questions.
There is Cross Validated which covers Statistical Machine Learning. Anything related to statistics is covered there. There is Computer Science which includes all scientific subfields of Computer Science related to "AI". There is now Data Sciences which covers applications of machine learning to data analysis. Computational Linguistic and Natural Language Processing are also covered by Linguistics. Philosophical questions are covered by Philosophy.
The recent increased interest is focused completely on Statistical Machine Learning (which includes topics like Neural Networks, Graphical Models, Deep Learning, Reinforcement Learning, ...) and its applications, which are already covered by these existing sites.
What is not covered already that would justify a new AI proposal?
There has been two AI proposals that went to beta and then failed. I supported one. There is a reason that they fail. Let me direct people to Robert answer from last year. These AI proposals don't come with the backing of a group of "AI" experts. The experts in "AI" are happy using the existing sites like Stack Overflow and Cross Validated. These AI proposals come from people who are not experts in "AI" but enthusiasts who might have taken a machine learning course or read a popsci or scifi book related to "AI", they often lack familiarity with the fields related to "AI" and are unaware of how these fields are actually organized. Without the backing of a group of experts in "AI" these sites will continue to fail.
I think this proposal will definitely fail and is a waste of people's time unless it is backed by a significant number of experts and researchers in "AI". Therefore my opinion is that this proposal should not go ahead unless we see a good number of experts and researchers in "AI" have committed to it.
If you can convince at least 50 experts and researchers in these fields to commit then sure, let's give this another try. Otherwise don't waste time on a proposal that even if it gets to beta will be shut down pretty quickly.
PS: By experts and researchers we mean experts and researchers in Machine Learning, Computer Vision, Computational Linguistics, Knowledge Representation and Reasoning, Computational Learning Theory, etc. If you are a "Professional or Expert" or "Academic or Research-Level Student" in another field but not in these fields you should not commit to this proposal claiming to be "Professional or Expert" or "Academic or Research-Level Student".
