The paradigm of the Social Internet of Things (SIoT) boosts a new trend wherein the connectivity and user friendliness benefits of Social Network Services (SNS) are exhibited within the network of connected objects, i.e. the Internet of Things (IoT). The SIoT exceeds the more traditional paradigm of IoT with an enhanced intelligence and context-awareness. In this article, a novel service framework based on a cognitive reasoning approach for dynamic SIoT services discovery in smart spaces is proposed. That is, reasoning about users’ situational needs, preferences, and other social aspects along with users’ surrounding environment is proposed for generating a list of situation-aware services which matches users’ needs. This reasoning approach is then implemented as a proof-of-concept prototype, namely Airport Dynamic Social, within a smart airport. Finally, an empirical study to evaluate the reasoning approach’s efficiency shows improved services adaptability to situational needs compared to common approaches proposed in literature.
