IoT education challenges - with Yann Douze, Senior Lecturer at Sorbonne University.

I had an insightful conversation with Yann Douze, a senior lecturer at Sorbonne University and an expert in Embedded Systems, the Internet of Things (IoT), and Micro Electronics. We discussed his background, the evolution of the IoT curriculum, and the use of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in IoT projects.

Yann shared his passion for IoT and emphasized the importance of continuous learning and curiosity in this rapidly evolving field. He highlighted his focus on hands-on projects, particularly communication technologies, low-power systems, and energy harvesting.

We explored how AI is increasingly used in IoT projects during the design and implementation phases. Yann stressed the need to understand and validate AI recommendations. He emphasized that AI is an accelerator, not a replacement for human engineers.

Yann also shared his insights on educating students about AI and IoT. He emphasized the importance of a strong foundation in both domains, critical thinking and asking the right questions when using technology.

We discussed energy harvesting in IoT and its potential for longevity and ecological benefits. Yann mentioned his focus on solar power due to its ease of availability and usability. He also highlighted the importance of educating students about the ecological significance of energy harvesting.

Overall, it was a thought-provoking and inspiring conversation. Yann’s passion for IoT and his dedication to educating students and contributing to science and society are truly commendable. I am grateful for the opportunity to learn from his experiences and insights.
