I've been developing and working on Artificial Intelligence. I know that Stack Overflow is the place to go with programming-only questions, so I have my bases covered on that side of my AI.

However, is there a site that focuses on simply breaking down intelligence in general regardless of whether it is human or artificial?

For example, if I wanted to ask the question that I posted on Reddit, "How do I further break down the process of identifying restraints on solutions and problems?" where would I ask this question?

I don't even believe that these kinds of questions are answerable by any community on Stack Exchange considering the wide adoption of the rule "no broad or unclear topics."

I was only hoping to get answers to these questions from a well-educated community which Stack Exchange certainly qualifies as.

  • you mean ai.SE? (the Artificial Intelligence Stack Exchange Site)

  • I suppose that could work. Does that site cover topics not already known to those who work in AI, but is soly-related to Artificial Intelligence? and would that question be ask-able on that site (no broad topics)?

  • @Memor-X, just based on this question (ai.stackexchange.com/questions/2127/…) I am going to assume that question is askable there

As already mentioned, the process of finding constraints is much too large for one question. If you can break it down into multiple more specific questions, that would be very good - it might still be a little subjective, but some Stack Exchange sites permit moderately open-ended questions as long as answers can be backed up by facts and references.

At Artificial Intelligence, as long as a question can be applied to the construction of an AI, we welcome it. Note that the math/stats parts of implementation are off-topic and are better served on Cross Validated. (AI mod here, if our on-topic page could use clarification, please tell me.) For intelligence and cognition questions in general, Cognitive Science looks promising.


You seem to be seeking a list of "restraints on solutions and problems" so I suspect that your question, as asked on Reddit, will be off-topic on all Stack Exchange sites.

See Are list questions off topic?

  • No. How does an intelligent being produce a list of constrainsts. Essentially, how does list production work?
