ProductCollectives™ on Stack Overflow

As AI continues to expand, so will the approaches and methods to extract the most applicable responses and answers to your questions through GenAI/AI tools.

Why do this?

A collective on Stack Overflow is a space that helps a sub-community around an area of practice or set of technologies form, grow, and thrive.

We've seen increased interest and activity around natural language processing that has been accelerated with the introduction of generative AI tools. We believe this area of practice will continue to attract new learners, and find new applications.

The NLP Collective on Stack Overflow will help facilitate collaboration, and support technologists of all skill levels in finding trusted, relevant content focused on the technical aspects of transforming and extracting useful information from natural language data.

About Labs

Since 2008 Stack Overflow has pioneered open source conversations in the technology community, helping us become the most visited, most trusted destination for developers in the world. In 2017, we unleashed the same productivity gains inside companies with Stack Overflow for Teams.

Knowledge sharing between peers and experts is fundamental to software development ‒ you can see it happening in Slack, in meetings, or quick hangs. Advances in technology, like GenAI, puts everyone in learning mode and knowledge sharing is at the core of that experience.

Stack Overflow for Teams sits at the very intersection of curiosity and innovation, a place to ask & answer your peers’ questions, learn from other experts within the company, and keep up with ‒ or be the driver of ‒ all new developments.

Our guiding principles

Find new ways to give technologists more time to create amazing things.
Accuracy is fundamental. That comes from attributed, peer-reviewed sources that provide transparency.
The coding field should be accessible to all, including beginners to advanced users.
Humans should always be included in the application of any new technology.

With these in mind, starting over the next few months, we will be sharing our ideas, opinions, designs, research and product ideas which combine emerging technologies with our platforms and services.
