Stephen Wolfram has received a lot of press which seems to have inspired vitriol among the Physics communities figureheads. (I’m not just talking about blog posts, he has at least one entire book of supposedly new mathematical research that he directly published without review). I would love to see some sort of alliance between physicists who directly publish their work openly and avoid the anonymous peer review system. — Stephen Wolfram (@stephen_wolfram) April 14, 2020. Perhaps Stephen Wolfram should be invited into the intellectual dark web. I have little use for Stephen Wolfram personally. “In the physics community we have a process for evaluating new ideas called ‘peer review.’ Stephen Wolfram leads a new approach to discover the fundamental theory of physics. But some physicists aren’t excited about Wolfram’s project and say he’s essentially buying himself influence in the field before waiting for peer review. Clear All Filter. ... COVID-19 Math Computer Science Physics Biology Chemistry Peer Reviewed Awaiting Review Science Nature Annals of Mathematics Physical Review A University of Calgary McMaster University University of Waterloo. But they’re still noteworthy, and here’s why: 1. As I’ve mentioned earlier, we have to be wary that these ideas have not been subjected to scrutiny under the peer review process of the rest of the scientific community. In Wolfram’s case, at best the work is correct, and history will remember Wolfram’s name for research that was done by many people as part of the Wolfram Physics Project. The Wolfram Physics Project follows the same concept. 8 | Potential Relation to Physics Introduction Having explored our models and some of their behavior, we are now in a position to discuss their potent - from the Wolfram Physics Project Technical Background All software and visualization tools are based on the Wolfram Language and freely usable. You can duplicate, change and run the code. Wolfram Physics Project. He self aggrandizes aggressively and self publishes things instead of putting things up for peer review. This could cause an important paradigm shift in theoretical physics.
