The evolution of the Internet of Things (IoT) has introduced a new paradigm for smart buildings that supports a decentralized architecture where a great deal of analytical processing can be done at the edge instead of the cloud or central servers. This computing approach often called "edge computing" or "fog computing" provides real-time intelligence and greater agility of control while, at the same time, offloading heavy communications traffic. By providing edge devices with greater intelligence, the IoT can be more responsive to user preferences and needs.

According to this vision, a building is no longer a static body of matter but a dynamic flow of data that drives the new concept of building as a service provider for users. With so much useful data to be captured and utilized, facility managers can use future developments to their advantage, giving them more insight into energy usage, space optimization, and other efficiencies that can positively impact their operations.

The evolution of automated and intelligent buildings goes towards cognitive buildings, which means a learning building that adapts to user needs, preferences, and changing conditions. Machine learning is a tool that allows making reliable and repeatable decisions by learning from historical relationships and trends in data.

Cognitive buildings go beyond a set of intelligent systems that, collectively, make a building more efficient and functional. They seek to bring these systems together under a new level of intelligence, which coordinates these systems to achieve high levels of optimization and enable buildings to adapt to their occupants’ needs and requirements.

Cognitive buildings can make their occupants more comfortable, more productive, and more healthy; they are buildings that think, learn, and act with intelligence and context awareness. They can sense their environments and also identify problems before they occur. This combines the use of detailed facility management capabilities and cognitive computing to drive towards better-managed buildings. Making buildings smarter can save energy, optimize spaces, and improve safety and security, while also allowing for customizations that suit each occupant's needs.

This book aims to offer a broad overview of the Cognitive Internet of Things applied to cognitive buildings and will give insight into platforms, solutions, and applications in this field.

In particular, the book will gather contributions about topics such as:

● Self-learning and adaptive environments
● Artificial Intelligence and Machine learning for cognitive buildings
● Architectures, Platforms, methodologies, and tools for cognitive buildings
● Innovative Cognitive Applications
● Cloud, Fog, and Edge computing for IoT-enabled buildings
● Big-data and IoT Analytics at the edge
● Building performances and analysis
● Thermal, visual, and air comfort management systems
● Risk assessment and management
● Predictive maintenance of building plants and systems
● Demand-side energy management
● Building sustainability
● Healthiness and healthcare in cognitive buildings
● Human-in-the-loop systems and environments
● Digital twin and simulation for cognitive buildings
● Analysis of building dwellers’ needs and requirements
