# Is CV the right site for this question?

I just asked the following question:

What are attention mechanism exactly?

It seems that attention-related questions haven't received answers on this site. Is this the right site for these questions? After Data Science, I found another site which seems related to Deep Learning questions: Artificial Intelligence (and I hope there isn't a third one). I believe Cross Validated is the most suitable site for this kind of questions, but I would like to have your confirmation.

• It seems to pertain to ANNs, which are on topic. I would say it's OK. We can see how it fares. In the interim, you added the [attention] tag, but it has no excerpt. Can you provide one? – gung - Reinstate Monica May 4 '18 at 19:03
• Hi @gung, I didn't create the [attention] label, I just used it because the site auto-completion suggested it (I did notice that it didn't have an excerpt, which I found odd). Given that I've never really understood what attention mechanism are (that's why I'm asking), I don't feel qualified to write an excerpt. If no one else volunteers to write a proper excerpt, I can surely parrot back the sentences commonly used to describe attention, but I'm not sure I'll make the community a great service. – DeltaIV May 5 '18 at 10:42
• FWIW the tag was created by @FranckDernoncourt. – amoeba May 5 '18 at 12:17
• Sorry for not having written an excerpt when creating the tag :-) – Franck Dernoncourt May 17 '18 at 4:42
