I think it depends on the question to some degree. There are some questions that have objective answers via, e.g. surveys of AI researchers. For example, the question of when AI researchers believe "Hard AI" will be created is objectively answerable via this method.

Perhaps as an analogy: The SoftwareEngineering.SE allows programming questions, but not of the same flavor as the StackOverflow main site. If you want to know how to do X in ...

We can address futurism (one of the leading drivers of misinformation about AI!) and serve an important function of myth-busting. We deal with social impacts in general, which other related stacks don't address. We can take pyschology/cognitive/neuroscience questions related to AI, which may unwelcome on those stacks. We can treate AI milestones in ...
