To answer the title question, easy-to-Google questions are not OK for the private beta. Flooding the site with trivial questions and simple answers is a great way to demolish any chance of attracting big-name experts. Artificial intelligence site proposals have already failed a couple times - once explicitly because of terribad pedestrian questions. If we ...

No, that wouldn't happen. A site only becomes eligible as a migration target from other sites' close dialogs after it loses the "beta" label entirely. Also, questions older than 60 days cannot be migrated, even by moderators! The migration you mentioned took place before that rule was instated. Besides, a question being on-topic at the target site is not a ...

If a question is off-topic here, just close it with the generic off-topic reason. Our scope isn't set in stone yet, so we want to keep things on our site in case they need to be reopened. If a question owner - not just any user passing by - really wants their question migrated, they can raise a custom mod flag and a CM will take care of it. (Though if the ...

Yes, that would definitely be a good idea; we get a lot of questions that belong there. The trick is that sites only get migration paths (in or out) after they graduate fully. The reasoning behind this is that beta sites are still figuring out their scopes, and it would be bad to send a question away forever with no way to reopen it at the source site. ...

If the example questions are not on-topic here, then I do not think any of them are unique, interesting and high enough quality to be worth migrating to Data Science stack exchange as they stand now. As a long-term contributor to Data Science, my thoughts on the questions are: Performance Evaluation Metrics used in Training, Validation and Testing is too ...

I think we should have first the list of questions which are off-topic here, and on-topic there. If we've enough number of them, the migration target probably can be added later on. For now you can flag each question for moderation, so it can be migrated manually when accepted. However as far as I've checked, there are only 73 questions tagged with ...

Migration to and from this site, in private beta, is most likely not going to be done. You'd have to invite people to the community in order for them to see the question - and when it comes to migrating from this site, it's easier to just close and re-ask (provided there are no answers yet). After private beta... well, I suppose you could post a comment on ...
