The scope of this paper is to introduce an innovative paradigm for cognitive self-managed elements of the Future Internet. The present Internet model is based on clear separation of concerns between protocol layers, with intelligence moved to the edges, and with the existent protocol pool targeting user and control plane operations with less emphasis on management tasks. Future Internet shall be engineered based on cognitive behavior with a high degree of autonomy, by proposing the operation of selfmanaged Future Internet elements around a novel hierarchical feedback-control cycle. The concepts are based on a hierarchical Distributed Cognitive cycle for System & Network Management (DC-SNM) which aims at facilitating the promotion of distributed management. The management approach encompass es a hierarchical distribution of cognitive cycles, breaking down the execution and decision making levels to (autonomic) network elements, network domain types and up to the service provider realm in order to address management, dynamic organization and (re)configuration of future internet elements.
