A soft question is a question (possibly subjective) about the field of theoretical computer science as opposed to being a question in theoretical computer science.
soft-question tag is often confused with the
big-picture tag, which serves a different purpose. The difference between the two is explained here.
- How would you teach X to undergrads?
- Why computer scientists do X when Y happens?
- Is theoretical computer science part of pure math?
- How long will it take to settle P vs NP in your opinion?
