COGMAN: A Cognitive Management Framework to Support Exploitation of the Future Internet
In this paper, a cognitive management framework is proposed for ensuring exploitation of the Future Internet (FI). Cognitive systems offer self-x and learning. A cognitive system has the ability to dynamically select its behavior through self-management/awareness functionality, taking into account information and knowledge on the context of the operations as well as policies and including the generation of the context itself. The framework is based on the principle that any real world object and any digital object that is available, accessible, observable or controllable can have a virtual representation in the Future Internet, which is called Virtual Object (VO). Basic VOs can be composed in a more sophisticated way by forming Composite VOs (CVOs), which provide services to high-level applications and end-users.
