Hello, brilliant minds of our engineering community!
We hope this message finds you in the midst of an exciting project or, perhaps, deep in the realms of a challenging problem, because we've got some groundbreaking news that might just make your day a whole lot more interesting.
🎉 Introducing PreAnswer AI - The Future of Community Support! 🎉
Have you ever found yourself pondering over a complex problem, wishing for an answer to magically appear before you even finish formulating the question? Well, wish no more! The MathWorks team, in collaboration with the most imaginative minds from the realms of science fiction, is thrilled to announce the launch of PreAnswer AI, an unprecedented feature set to revolutionize the way we interact within our MATLAB and Simulink community.
What is PreAnswer AI?
PreAnswer AI is our latest AI-driven initiative designed to answer your questions before you even ask them. Yes, you read that right! Through a combination of predictive analytics, machine learning, and a pinch of engineering wizardry, PreAnswer AI anticipates the challenges you're facing and provides you with solutions, insights, and code snippets in real-time.
How Does It Work?
  • Presentiment Algorithms: By simply logging into MATLAB Central, our AI begins to analyze your recent coding patterns, activity, and even the intensity of your keyboard strokes to understand your current state of mind.
  • Predictive Insights: Using a complex algorithm, affectionately dubbed "The Oracle", PreAnswer AI predicts the questions you're likely to ask and compiles comprehensive answers from our vast database of resources.
  • Efficiency and Speed: Imagine the time saved when the answers to your questions are already waiting for you. PreAnswer AI ensures you spend more time innovating and less time searching for solutions.
We are on the cusp of deploying PreAnswer AI in a beta phase and are eager for you to be among the first to experience its benefits. Your feedback will be invaluable as we refine this feature to better suit our community's needs.
Spoiler, it's April 1st if you hadn't noticed. While we might not (yet) have the technology to read minds or predict the future, we do have an incredible community filled with knowledgeable, supportive members ready to tackle any question you throw their way.
Let's continue to collaborate, innovate, and solve complex problems together, proving that while AI can do many things, the power of a united community of brilliant minds is truly unmatched.
Thank you for being such a fantastic part of our community. Here's to many more questions, answers, and shared laughs along the way.
Happy April Fools' Day!

Jokes aside, I'm inclined to think that a segregated, automatically generated default AI answer would go a long way toward disincentivizing low-effort pasting of vague unverified AI trash. It wouldn't be any worse, and nobody would have to question exactly how much insincerity justifies removal. It's just a default "answer". Nobody is fooled into thinking that a human is helping them. Put it in a highlighted block by itself and make it dismissibile, and frequent users who want informed human responses will never see it.
Maybe that ship has already sailed.

This is an interesting idea. We've been iterating on similar ideas and have seen some question & answer sites doing what you describe. An AI generated answer could be helpful for questions that go unanswered by the community. While the quality of the AI answers will vary, there's usually some helpful elements in my experience.
