Writing the statements (verbal utterances) of a virtual agent (in academic research and industry) will require the experience and skills of new professionals : script writer / psychologist / code writer / Other from EBG will end on 01/08/2017 08h58
In my own experience of writing sentences to be pronounced by an avatar, it is quite clear that it is important to tune precisely the style, the pragmatic level, etc. The exercise is closer to writing a drama than creating the verbal material of a psycholinguistic experiment... said EBG

The multiverse (meta-universes) theories will gain support among cosmologists in the future as it is still debated. : Yes / No / Other from EBG will end on 01/10/2017 16h16
@Loomyer : You are right. In fact, it appears from the Wikipedia article (I must admit that I am absolutely a novice in cosmology) that many versions of multiverse theory exist. In the question I meant any type of multiverse view on the universe with the exception of a direct application of quantum physic principles like the Schrödinger's paradox of the Cat. If the question is vague or unclear, I will try to make it more precise! Thanks! said EBG

Welcome to the first Open Database of Hypotheses in Sciences and Technology.
Polemus.com is an independent, non commercial site that allows you to store your hypotheses about scientific and technological topics, to create polls and to follow the results as they appear. You will obtain timestamped proofs of your choices and statistical estimations of your expertise in the different domains of knowledge.
The site was conceived and is moderated by scientists to allow a free debate. To give your support to this project, you have two ways: contribute to the debates and put a reference to Polemus.com on your websites and blogs!

Signs of alien life will be found by detecting non-random electromagnetic signals : True / False / Other from EBG will end on 01/10/2020 15h01
Taking into account the Drake equation evaluating the the number of technological civilizations that might exist in our galaxy, the SETI organization looks for proofs of alien life existence. If it succeeds in achieving this goal, it will be the most incredible news in the history of mankind! said EBG
