Notes: Currently most voted and dedicated user with the relevant knowledge and skills about AI. In addition, he's working in this research area, so he knows what he's talking about. His skills may help to improve quality of this site. EDIT by NietzscheanAI (formerly known as user217281728): Most kind, thanks. I'm happy to accept this nomination and want ...

Yes, absolutely. Regardless of your position on the whole "theory vs. implementation" thing, math is an essential part of AI and having convenient access to LaTex would be a boon here.

Notes: The second most voted and active user, data scientist with the right skillset across different AI branches. His answers are reliable and interesting. His skills can be a great asset to improve quality of this site. EDIT by Matthew Graves: Thanks for the nomination! I'm pleased to accept it. I'm interested in helping this site help people better ...

Notes: This nominee would be a good choice because of his active involvement in the community's development during the private beta and his experience on Stack Exchange! I'll step right up and offer my services to the community as a moderator pro tempore. I confess that I'm just an enthusiast when it comes to artificial intelligence, but I have been highly ...

Here are several questions and answers that would benefit from MathJax support on this website. These are just a few examples I've found in a 5 minutes search. Nevertheless, I think this number is enough to justify a MathJax support on this website. Questions https://ai.stackexchange.com/a/4710/2444 https://ai.stackexchange.com/a/2994/2444 https://ai....

Notes: I would like to offer my services as a pro-tem moderator on this site. I have watched been a relatively active member since I joined on Day 0. I have 135 edits (counting tag-only edits), I was the first one to earn the Strunk and White badge, I am the top reviewer for both Close Votes and Reopen Votes on the main site, I was the first reviewer of ...

I think we should discourage the use of LaTeX, but should allow it. Our goal is to attract experts in AI, and the language of AI (today) is math. Like that post in the OP (which I wrote, btw), I think math makes a lot of concepts easier to understand. I think this SE should focus on the design aspects of AI and AI research instead of the programming and ...

I'll volunteer myself. Notes: This nominee would be a good choice because - he is passionate about AI and its potential applications for improving the human condition. This nominee is also a strong supporter of open exchange of scientific knowledge and technology, as expressed in the Open Source, Open Web, Open Data, Open Science and Open Hardware ...

Yes, it's pointless to have two tags referring to the same thing. Since deepqa had three questions and watson had four (and all but one DeepQA question had the Watson tag already), I manually merged the tags together by removing deepqa. One could make the argument that DeepQA is the research project while Watson is the product, but all of the questions ...

I, for one, would love its inclusion. I do not believe it is possible to divorce AI from mathematics on many levels. For instance, I wanted to ask a question regarding the use of backpropagation with regards to the ANFIS model but had to do so in a clumsy way as I was not able to include the proper notation for partial derivatives. It would surprise me to ...


5

I consolidated the tags to quantum-computing because this is not an applied hardware and programming site. A tag synonym isn't really appropriate here. Synonyms were intended to link two completely separate words meaning essentially the same thing (think 'car' vs 'auto'). For simple variations on the same word, there's no need to bulk up the tag listings ...


4

Yes, tags with the same meaning should indeed be synonyms. The requested synonym is now in place; cnn was also merged into convolutional-neural-networks to update the eight existing cnn questions and deduplicate the tags on the two questions that had both tags.


4

Yes. They both mean the same thing, so we should have only one tag. They should be synonymized, because if you type cnn the tag convolutional-neural-networks does not come up as a suggestion, and vice versa.

While it might be nice to have for some questions, most questions you would need LaTeX for should be off-topic here. This site is not meant for machine learning questions, as Cross Validated and Data Science Stack Exchange sufficiently cover those subjects. See: Are all questions asked on stats and data science SE also on topic here? Note: I posted this ...


4

I would like to add to the calls for LaTeX support with a specific topic. In my opinion, the AI Stack Exchange should be the home for questions about Reinforcement Learning. RL questions actually appear in larger numbers on Data Science and Cross Validated Stack Exchange sites. That makes little sense to me, when AI, robotics and other better homes in a ...

Starting a new list of math questions to expand on nbro's list: https://ai.stackexchange.com/questions/6633/back-propagation-in-nn-with-sigmoid-activation-function-division-by-0 (post deleted) https://ai.stackexchange.com/questions/5057/k-armed-bandit-and-reinforcement-learning https://ai.stackexchange.com/q/7032/1671 https://ai.stackexchange.com/...

I would say yes. I don't know many people who use the term "deep network" like that. You may hear "deep neural network", but that's still basically synonymous with "deep learning" as far as I can tell.


2

I would be careful to merge the two together. deepqa is very much just that - a deep learning approach to questions and answers. This covers NLP, hypothesis formation, candidate answer generation, and answer selection from the candidates. It is fully limited to that domain. These pages show what I'm getting at: https://www.research.ibm.com/deepqa/deepqa....

Watson is the name of the computer, and DeepQA is the name of the technology and software. They both correlated, but Watson sounds like more specific, but on the other hand there are no any known computers which are using DeepQA which aren't called Watson. We do not know if there are any other computers which uses DeepQA technology, but not related to ...

Seems AWS came back up in the "Sponsored by" section recently, this is what it looks like right now:


1

The "sponsored by" is gone, for now, because the site sponsorship is currently paused. While we don't have a set date yet for the sponsorship to return, current conversations with AWS point to relaunching in early Q3, though the date isn't locked in yet.


1

The question has been addressed (see comments to the question). We now have a monte-carlo-tree-search tag.


1

This is done now, sorry for the delay. We still have natural-language and language-processing, which sound pretty similar to natural-language-processing — it might be worth revisiting this NLP tag discussion.


1

Done - a tag synonym has been created and conv-neural-network has been merged into convolutional-neural-networks, thereby updating all existing questions. This has the added benefit of making the tag name consistent with all the other pluralized ones.


1

I'd (personally) go for computing because it is about doing things with computers rather than the computers themselves, as you state in the question yourself.


1

If deep-learning is preferred, then deep-network should be set up as a tag synonym for it, that way if anyone tries to use it, it gets mapped to the preferred name. We need someone with 1250 reputation to do that.
