  • I love it! It is technically difficult to do but with next gen accelerator sensors we might be able to do it.

  • excellent!

  • Great!

  • You made it! The end of the course. I hope you liked the holistic approach across the many fields which the IoT impacts. I was not present as much as I hoped for, the reason being we are designing an end-to-end 5G system which took all my time in autumn 2017. However, I have read all your comments, and truly loved the ideas, creativity and interaction among...

  • Thanks, Johan. I am sure one or another opportunity in IoT will work out for you. Good luck with it all! Kindest, Mischa.

  • :) Great feedback and love your encouragement re "CEO chairs" --- go for it! Kind regards, Mischa.

  • Thanks, Marco, for the great feedback. I wish you all the best for the coming years!

  • You mean for over the air updates?

  • Go for it, Queen Banda! Kindest, Mischa.

  • Great --- let's synch at the end of Week 4 and see if you got an inspiration on the way. Kindest, Mischa.

  • You need passion, a good team, and a reasonable good idea. The rest will follow ... :)

  • Denis, wonderful observation re sharing. I couldn't agree more with you. And the Internet, including MOOCs like Futurelearn, are a wonderful platform to do so.

  • Excellent self-observation, Ebrahim! Have a look into Week 4, and let's resynch at the end of it.

  • Let's see if Week 4 helps with that ... :)

  • That's a cool application! :)

  • Good area! Important topics are key redistribution, human engineers in the loop when dealing with IoT security, and quantum capabilities.

  • Totally agree, Johan. The IoT in fact lends itself to a lot of social entreprises. Just google it and you will get a lot of inspirations!

  • Dear all, my sincere apologies that I am coming in only now. The past weeks have been a nightmare but things are easing out for me so I should be able to be present a little more. I have gone through all your comments of past weeks --- thanks so much for such a proactive participation. Have a wonderful Week 4 and I remain with kindest regards from London,...

  • Well said!

  • :)

  • Completely agree. Also have that experience as of late. There is an interesting framework developed by the Battersea Arts Centre (BAC) in London which gets around this. If you are in/around London, it is worth checking it out. Kindest, Mischa.

  • ... alert levels are high, and rightly so!

  • Terry, what a great idea that is! You should try to make that work. People will love it. Kindest, Mischa.

  • Thanks for sharing this, Virginia. Let's see what others say. I love the ideas. Keep being creative! Mischa.

  • Excellent application! Mischa.

  • Love that, Ronald! Would help me and a lot of friends I have. Great product - market fit. Mischa.

  • Well, you made it --- coongrats! You were a great interactive crowd and I wish you all the best for your future IoT efforts. Thanks for listening in, and please do leave feedback. With kindest regards, Mischa.

  • Dear all, great to hear about your experiences --- that is wonderful. Mischa.

  • Great to know. Thanks for sharing, Eris. Kindest, Mischa.

  • Please, do! There are loads of resources available :)

  • Keep iterating! Watch out for false positive, eg your wife coming through the door. Mischa.

  • Mischa Dohler made a comment

    You made it until here --- great! I hope you like this week. There was certainly a lot of food for thought! And you did really well interacting. Thanks a lot, and see you next week! Kind regards, Mischa.

  • Could not agree more. This systemt is more than 200 years old. It is not of any use in modern innovation cycles.

  • Thanks for sharing!

  • Complete agree but the biggest problem is that if you opt out there is nothing you are left to use. We are already very digitally dependent ... to be seen how all pans out. Kindest, Mischa.

  • Agreed!

  • Love it! Just came out of a session with Usman Haque on an IoT Certification Process and we settled for an "Ethics Certification", ie ethics natively build in. Love your idea of "morality stamp". Great! Mischa.

  • Great idea. Now, next question, how? How to make this secure and scalable and useful and accountable and and and? Heterogeneity and complexity are major issue. I am advocating for distributed ledgers, like block chains. To be seen ... Mischa.

  • Yes, great idea. Watch it! (One of the episodes in Series 2 were filmed next door to me --- small world, isn't it?)

  • Paul, the real problem is that we have gotten so used to all the services and there is quite a bit of social pressure that opting out, even if entitled, is not an option anymore. And it is going to get worse ... Mischa.

  • Brilliant --- thanks for bringing this all out. I leave you with a thought on how to manage all these heterogeneous sensors and relationships of ownerships: distributed ledgers (blockchains). Mischa.

  • Herbert, I am not sure either; and I think none of us is. It is a field in making, with a lot of technical and social engineering still needed. Mischa.

  • Thanks, Herbert. With kind regards, Mischa.

  • Theodore, thanks for sharing your thought. Please, see my response to Guus above. Kindest, Mischa.

  • I suspect you know the answer. But for the sake of benefit, let me outline the chain of argumentation: costs & capabilities of processing have been commoditized quicker over past years when compared to transmission of data. Therefore, the right strategy would be to process as much locally as possible. Kind regards, Mischa.

  • :)

  • Charles, with 100% privacy, there is 0% utility. Imagine Google product Waze if nobody shared their data? There surely must be another way, some form of tradeoff? Kindest, Mischa.

  • Brilliant! Thanks for sharing, Theodore. Kindest, Mischa.

  • Great --- thanks, Marcelo. I leave you with one issue to ponder about: does "open source" mean "for free"? Kindest, Mischa.

  • Couldn't agree more! I think you will enjoy this week then as we discuss exactly privacy and security in greatest details. Mischa.

  • Theodore, interesting you say this. Remember the point made by Ben Hammersly that the IoT will not suddenly be there on a Monday morning. It will come slowly and at some point we will notice the difference. With kind regards, Mischa.

  • Charles, the amount of platforms has indeed exploded since expertise to do these has been commoditized. However, barely any of these will survive beyond a 3 year cash flow. A good bet is to stick to companies who have a big name (if you can afford it) or to companies which have existed at least 3 years before the recent increase in platform offerings. Mischa.

  • Welcome to Week 3. I think you will love this week! Loads of very polarizing topics. And, you are going to "meet" the world's most famous hacker --- who happened to be a student of mine. Enjoy, and engage! Mischa.

  • Marcelo, so sorry for this. I got extremely busy this past week. I am about to sign a huge government grant which took all my bandwidth. I will try to be more involved this time. If there is a specific issue, and it is urgent, just ping me on whatsapp under +44 7873 252 444. Mischa.

  • Wow --- James, this is really, really kind of you. First time I see a comment like yours. Wonderful that you ack'ed the contribution of your follow learners. Made my day! With kind regards, Mischa :)

  • Nicky, thanks for highlighting my TEDx on this. I had a good time delivering it. There is a related one I gave on Smart Cities. With kind regards, Mischa.

  • Thanks, Kirsty! Mischa :)

  • Great to hear, Charles. Next week is data, platforms and security. I think you all will like it. Mischa :)

  • Awesome! Great to hear. Mischa :)

  • Thanks for the feedback, Charles. With kind regards, Mischa.

  • Marcelo, good question. The link you provide is not a standard, i.e. not a Standards Defining Organization (SDO) as we call it. It is rather an alliance. But Alliances can also be very powerful. In the end, you rightly observed, only standards can ensure vendor lock-in. Thanks for bringing this up. Mischa.

  • Wow --- thanks so much for this feedback. With kind regards, Mischa :)

  • Hayden, great to hear. Next week is all about data and platforms. And last week is about entrepreneurship. Kindest, Mischa.

  • Thanks :)

  • Thanks, Wolfgang! Looking forward to more interactions in the coming weeks. Kindest, Mischa.

  • Great to hear, Roy! Kindest, Mischa.

  • Kaushik, Week 2 is a little more technical. Hope you will like it. Kindest, Mischa.

  • Thanks, Mischa.

  • Totally agree with your observation on the super highway --- great one. Kindest, Mischa.

  • Thanks, Naeel. Kindest, Mischa.

  • Great to hear. I hope you make it until Week 4 where we discuss IoT entrepreneurship in quite some details. Kindest, Mischa.

  • Thanks, Isreal. Kindest, Mischa.

  • Great to hear, Carlos. Kindest, Mischa.

  • Thanks :)

  • Deaer Venkata, Week 2 will be more technical but please note that a MOOC is vocational so we had to remove all heavy tech & maths and all that. If you are interested in more technical work, please, sign up or have your company sign you up to www.5g-courses.com which is very, very technical. Or just go to my publications under www.mischadohler.com. With kind...

  • Great discussion, really! Thanks to all, Mischa.

  • Very good!

  • Interesting thoughts, Sam! Thanks for sharing. Mischa.

  • I hope you all enjoyed this first week. Week 2 will be a little more technical; and week 3 then about data; and finally week 4 about you as an upcoming entrepreneur. I will stay tuned, and hope to be able to answer any open questions you have. Thanks also for your lovely feedback! With kind regards, Mischa :)

  • Great to hear! Mischa :)
