All theoretical/conceptual questions about statistical learning theory (which is an approach to computational learning theory, developed by Vladimir Vapnik and others, a sub-field of AI) and multi-armed bandit problems/algorithms are on-topic here, but they are also on-topic on Stats SE. Of course, as a mod of Artificial Intelligence Stack Exchange, I would ...

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 ...

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. I think in general though, questions like the one in that meta-post actually belong ...

I like this. Go ahead and create it. If other users have objections, we can always remove.

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 ...

I don't think that this type of question should be made on-topic here, but it may also depend on the question (maybe you can provide a few examples of questions that you have in mind?). The reasons are the site should focus on the theoretical, philosophical, and social aspects of artificial intelligence, but questions asking about funding your project do ...
