These questions were asked right around the time the site opened. The first one currently has 3 close votes, all for off-topic. Any thoughts on whether it is on topic or off topic? Per the comment link, this is off topic for the site: https://area51.meta.stackexchange.com/questions/5056/can-i-ask-questions-related-to-chess-ai-and-algorithms.
While I think there is a fairly large population of programmers on the site currently, I think that the Area 51 discussion is still on target and questions like this are off topic. I'm not convinced that the questions would get good responses on a site like Computer Science, but those answers will almost certainly be better than what chess experts can come up with.
