Conceptually speaking, I think it can be useful when a community decides that a rare "big list" question would be so incredibly useful, the community agrees collectively that it is worth the careful curation and on-going upkeep needed to keep it up to date [I'm hoping to build a feature to that effect in the future]. The downside of allowing these questions ...

Most Stack Exchange sites (including this one) are English-only, and it's not expected that users will be able to use other languages. Therefore, if there are resources that are not available in English, it would be very good to make them accessible to English speakers somewhere, and this site would be a fine place for doing so. Make sure, of course, that ...

It appears that there is at least one question like this on the site: Are Siri and Cortana AI programs? So I guess it would be okay - as long as you are asking about one (or two) specific thing(s). For asking about in general when something is AI, that has already been asked: What are the minimum requirements to call something AI? The tags... Now that's ...

I believe so, since all user contributions are licensed under cc by-sa 3.0 with attribution required (including the one from the previous dumps), so as long you give the attribution, that should be fine. In this case, it won't be stealing, but republishing. See: What is the license for the content I post? Proper attribution is required if you republish ...

I am in favour of this type of question being on-topic here. In particular, it seems that those questions would be at the intersection of "history of AI" (which is on-topic here) and "terminology" (in the sense that you want to know something about terms). We have had some of those question in the past. I remember one that I actually ...

In addition to what was said by Mithrandir, I would personally say it's best that such a question focus on only one thing. In other words, questions that ask about an aspect of each item in a big list of things would be less than ideal. In the case of Siri and Cortana (smart personal assistants, basically), they're very similar products, so it makes sense to ...

If we want to accept all or most questions that are related to AI and are also on-topic on the Data Science SE, Cross Validated SE, and Stack Overflow websites, then we'd better just merge the websites. We focus on the theoretical and philosophical aspects of AI, but I would not say that all implementation-related questions are off-topic here (but we need to ...

As mentioned by Mithrandir, this is a network-wide measure that applies to all users with less than 125 reputation. Source: The Complete Rate-Limiting Guide. It's designed to slow down spammers. Once the 40-minute window elapses, you'll be able to post another question anywhere on the network. I see that you have already done so. Please note that resource ...

This applies site-wide. If you have asked a question anywhere on the Stack Exchange network in the past 40 minutes, you have to wait before asking a question on any site. See this answer: https://meta.stackoverflow.com/questions/322157/arent-new-users-throttled-asking-questions-anymore/322265#322265

Is it allowed to do? No, this is not allowed in general for images, or in fact any content that you discover online or anywhere else. To use an image in a question or answer, you need to be the original image author, or to have been given copyright that is compatible with uploading to Stack Exchange. The Stack Exchange terms and conditions include a section ...

We have had already a similar question in the past, and, in the end, I closed it as "too broad". It's unlikely that someone will have exactly that same question (i.e. it's unlikely that someone will be interested in a brief description of those specific models). I don't like this type of question where there could be potentially many different and/...

Absolutely! This is an area where I have formal training, and can legitimate go back to proto-indo-european. (But people typically don't like my analyses b/c they conflict with their own.) If you see any unanswered terminological question, or are interested in the etymology, this is an area of special focus for me in the tech industry and academia, as is ...

Those two questions (especially, the second one) are currently off-topic here, as they fall under the general category "software recommendations", which is off-topic here, although there may be some exceptions (e.g. questions related to AGI may not be closed as off-topic, as they may not be on-topic anywhere else and only people that visit our site ...

Personally I don't mind the softball questions that could have been answered with a Google search because I feel SE:AI can add context to a Wikipedia entry, and I think we should be the #2 result for that stuff, behind Wikipedia but certainly ahead of Quora. (Drives traffic to our site and potentially expands our user base.) Regarding the other stuff, I ...
