“Polyplexus is an open window where you can explore innovative thinking in different domains that inherently cultivates a novel multidisciplinary approach. Access to organic real time evolution of these streaming ideas is extraordinary, enabling the user to ultimately foster new symbiotic ideation.”
Imanuel Lerman, MD, MSc
“Polyplexus allows DARPA to interact with a much larger audience than in the past. It helps smaller research groups participate in DARPA projects, and it enables DARPA to fund more innovative research topics and to be more flexible about its funding allocations.”
Blair Perot, Ph.D.
“Polyplexus provides a means for researchers to vet new concepts in a relatively quick manner without too much overhead. Then, for the more successful ideas, the results can help support the development of a broader sponsored research program. In this way, the sponsored research programs will be more focused on concepts that are more likely to be successful and have impact.”
Dr. William D. Oliver
“Polyplexus provides a nice mechanism for filtering thousands of pages of published literature down to individual focused insights, making it much easier to see how things might link together.”
Nathan Killoran, Ph.D.
“Polyplexus is an amazing platform that introduces a new and very unique method of scientific communication, through micropublications and conjectures,” said Dr. Shailesh Date, founder and CEO of LRC Systems. “Because of its innovative nature and ability to integrate across disciplines, Polyplexus is already impacting how the scientific community postulates, interacts and builds projects around new concepts. Kudos to the Polyplexus team.”
Shailesh Date, Ph.D.
“Polyplexus granted us a way to find a solution to an ill-defined and complex space, and ultimately find relevant seed funding from DARPA and ARL.”
Omar Claflin, MD, Ph.D.
“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.”
Evan Goldstein, Ph.D.
“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.”
Kathryn A. Johnson, 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.”
Morgan Ware, Ph.D.
“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.”
John D. Bullough, Ph.D.
“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.”
Victoria Coverstone, Ph.D.
“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.”
Daniel A. McAdams, Ph.D.
