This is a concept paper that introduces the Cognitive Internet of Things and particularly the role that human users play in it. The Cognitive Internet of Things, which forms a Collective AI, based on autonomous software agents, with things that can sense, think and act. We address three specific IoT challenges from a human-centred and social way: interaction, user experience, and human models. We have made an extended literature review from 2015 since today, however we present here only a few most current human-centred IoT related works. The keywords we searched for, among others were "Cognitive IoT", "Collective Artificial Intelligence", "Social IoT", "smart/cognitive things", 'CIoT design/usability', etc. The asset of the paper is to provide three open research questions for future investigation pertaining to natural human-agent interaction, design and user experience, and human modeling, and identify literature gaps.
