So, can someone help me understand what the scope of the site is?
I ask a question about Monte Carlo search, which is one of the core algorithms behind the Go playing AI bot, AlphaGo, and it is closed off as off-topic, citing this reason
This question does not appear to be about artificial intelligence.
So, my question is: Why isn't it about AI? Isn't AlphaGo an AI bot? Why does asking about an AI algorithm of an AI bot make it off-topic?
Can someone(maybe one of the close-voters) take the example of AlphaGo and explain what an on-topic question and an off-topic question(<-- You can use mine if you want to.) would look like?
I already asked a question about the scope of this site, citing another example, where I'm yet to get a clear answer.
If all the questions get closed as on-topic in DS and CV, then why do we even have this site? (Sorry if I sound rude, but I really want this site to grow. So, the early we sought out our scope, the better.)
