Summary form only given. In an "Internet of services," all people, machines, and goods will have access to it by leveraging the network infrastructure of tomorrow. The Internet will thus offer services for all areas of life and business, such as virtual insurance, online banking and music, and so on. Those services will require a complex services infrastructure including service delivery platforms bringing together demand and supply. Building blocks for the Internet of services are SOA, Web2.0 and semantics on the technology side as well as novel business models, and approaches to systematic and community based innovation. The talk will motivate and describe the vision of the "Internet of services," its building blocks, relevant early initiatives and open research questions.
