# Tag Info

I created a new chat room for this site. Seems like the one from the previous AI site prevented creating a chat room.

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 ...

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 ...

As mentioned by Rory Alsop, you've run into this Stack Exchange bug or something related. You can manually fix your profile by editing it on this site, or by opening your profile settings on a different site and choosing Save and copy changes to all Stack Exchange communities.

OK, this is partially done now, sorry for the delay. This proposal (lightly edited for length) has now been used to update the blurb at the top of our tour page! To get various other instances of the text updated, we'll need to contact Stack Exchange. They're pretty busy at the moment, but hopefully something will happen here within a couple weeks.

Quoting this comment by Stack Exchange's Director of New Community Development, Robert Cartaino: The IBM sponsorship has concluded, but AWS has signed on to take over later this year! We are currently finalizing the materials needed and it should go live when everything is completed. According to the Wayback Machine, the logo started to show somewhere ...

Editing tags is also always welcome (and I think you get a little rep for it.) Note: We do require reliable references for tag info. Also, Vote! THat's our method of vetting information, so more vote is always better. Also incentivizes quality contributors and disincentivizes low quality content.

Catija's hunch was right: the logo is blocked by uBlock, since it's a link to ad.doubleclick.net. I would have checked that, if I hadn't seen the AWS logo on Cross Validated a few weeks ago. But right now it's not showing there either. I guess the ad link is important enough (in terms of revenue, or just part of the sponsorship contract) to keep it, so I'm ...

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

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 ...

We tried to specify in our on-topic page examples of questions that would be off-topic here (see the section "Off-topic"), but we didn't provide an extensive list of types of questions that would be off-topic. I think we could indeed create a meta-post with a list of all types of questions that would be off-topic, but I am not sure if it's worth it,...

No, this is not the reason. The reason is that you create posts whose content is off-topic. Please, see our on-topic page. Please, read it very carefully (especially, the notes)! If something is unclear there, please, let me know or ask another meta-question.

We had done a consensus-based edit last year: What should the AI.SE Site Description be?. (Essentially, a bunch of active users contributed to the thread, and then the edits were made by the active mods. Although I was hoping for more people to participate, we had to go with the input and consensus we had at the time.) I do think this is something that ...
