We are seeing it right on this site.
There are two groups, the people that believe AI exists and the ones that dont...i am from the second group.
Designing features that account for varied motives and yet achieve desired result of "learning" and "teaching" is really a key for such a site. Designing such features is not easy, but can be done.
@GT how can that be classified as a product of AI?
According to Wikipedia: Artificial intelligence (AI) is the intelligence of machines and the branch of computer science that aims to create it. AI textbooks define the field as "the study and design of intelligent agents" where an intelligent agent is a system that perceives its environment and takes actions that maximize its chances of success
This site's purpose fits that definition. I can say the site fails miserably at it. But, can be modified / enhanced to achieve that objective.
Most recently, I was involved with helping develop technology that identified malicious websites using algorithmic learning techniques. The output was then used to protect people on the Internet from visiting such sites. That is an AI system in my view.
Now, one can argue that the algorithm itself is human developed and fed into the system and therefore no intelligence is inherent in that system. Hmmm....!
Oh... so the site uses an artificial intelligence to classify problems and display them to appropriate users?
Yeah that's one really powerful use of AI these days :) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AY4ajbu_G3k
