Your voice of reason at the Plateau de Saclay
We now have to admit that we have run out of novel articles that we could publish: IP Paris first admits students and only later puts in place the necessary administration? We already had that at Paris-Saclay! Committees do no share their decisions with the lecturers? Yeah, we also had that at Paris-Saclay. A lack of digital infrastructure? That's just like at Paris-Saclay! A jungle of partially overlapping educational programs? We already have one at Télécom Paris alone. A hegemony of one of the schools? That also somehow reminds us of Paris-Saclay. An ever-growing thicket of cross-institutional institutions? We had one at Télécom alone already. Should we potentially even make constructive proposals? We did that back in 2018 already ↗Fluctuat et Mergitur article on how to improve IP Paris↗Proposals by the DIG team to improve Télécom Paris↗Slides by the DIG team to improve Télécom Paris.
The time has thus come to wrap up. We have withdrawn our undercover agents from the presidency of the Master's program Data&Knowledge at Paris-Saclay University, and the presidency of the Data AI Master's program, of the Computer Science Program, and of the PhD track Computer Science at IP Paris. Fluctuat et Mergitur will come to an end. In this last article, we offer a constructive summary of what has changed for the better over these last years. We will accompany this summary by the notes of people who participated in the relevant meetings.
