Abstract

This paper presents a framework for the virtualization of real world objects and the cognitive management of their virtual counterparts. The framework consists of three levels of functionality and each level comprises cognitive entities that provide the means for self-management and learning, allowing for smart, flexible applications and objects. The presented framework enables the abstraction of the heterogeneity that derives from the vast amount of diverse objects/devices, while enhancing reliability and facilitates the consideration of the views of various users/stakeholders (owners of objects & communication means) for ensuring proper application provision, business integrity and, therefore, maximization of exploitation opportunities. The paper also presents a corresponding prototype that has been developed for the validation of the proposed approach, in a real-life fire detection scenario in a Smart Home.
