“Polyplexus is an easy-to-use platform for people who want to practice distilling information to its essence. In a world of increasingly available information, the deep work behind information integration and distillation is an increasingly valuable skill and commodity.”
Morgan Ware, Ph.D.
“Seeing connections and overlap between sub-fields within my own field is potentially useful, but what makes an idea like Polyplexus truly revolutionary is getting a controlled environment in which to find useful connections with disparate fields within which I would generally never associate.”
“To my mind, Polyplexus enables scientific discovery as well as artistry by providing access to and engagement with a diverse group of leading researchers and their latest findings.”
Daniel A. McAdams
“Speculative technologies conceptualized in science fiction have shown the capability to be a technology pull through creating technologies and their usage scenarios that are subsequently realized in practice. Polyplexus offered a broad sampling of fundamental work and innovative ideas that could be pieced together to create an approach to leverage science fiction to guide forecasting of potential future technology developments.”
“The case for Polyplexus as a network of many: provides a curated venue for pithy scientific ‘weak links’, pays homage to the scientific (or even the Talmudic) process, and makes social media more than a zero sum game. A win-win-win for all.”
“Polyplexus brings together researchers and ideas that would have remained siloed otherwise. The platform encourages the kind of creative thinking that will be necessary to address today’s challenges.”
“I intentionally tried to be ‘open’ about letting other research guide my work. In some ways, it would have been easier to write all the Evidence and Conjectures μPubs I needed, but I preferred to scour the site for interesting ideas and to expand my thinking.”
“As a Plexor, Polyplexus provides me with a virtual ‘white board’ to connect and refine my ideas. I am also exposed to the work of other Plexors, who rapidly create Evidence uPubs and connect new ideas in Conjecture uPubs. Both aspects of the platform spur collaborative idea generation, improving everybody’s ideas and subsequent proposals.”
“Polyplexus provides a very intuitive framework for developing research hypotheses. The platform’s process formalizes what a lot of researchers are already comfortable with: literature search, conjecturing, and integrating the results to devise a hypothesis.”
John D. Bullough
“Polyplexus allows me to make unlikely connections between research results that I’d otherwise never see. It’s like a multi-player 3D jigsaw puzzle.”
Kathryn A. Johnson
“Polyplexus is great for any researcher who enjoys playing with ideas. From my own Conjectures and from following those of others, I begin to see themes emerge. The platform has truly inspired my vision and proposed research.”
“I really like that Polyplexus is trying a new model of knowledge sharing and publishing that aims for rigor plus super speed”
“My postdoc introduced me to Polyplexus. I was skeptical but was drawn in by the opportunity to see curated information that I would not ordinarily see.”
