In the creation of a smart future information society, IoT and CCN break two key barriers for both front-end sensing and back-end networking. However, we still observe the missing piece of the research that dominates current networking traffic control and system management, for example, lacking the knowledge penetrated into both sensing and networking to glue them holistically. In this article, we propose leveraging emerging machine learning or deep learning techniques to create aspects of knowledge to facilitate the designs. In particular, we can extract knowledge from collected data to facilitate reduced data volume, enhanced system intelligence and interactivity, improved service quality, communication with better controllability and lower cost. We this knowledge-oriented traffic control and networking management paradigm Knowledge Centric Networking (KCN). This article presents the rationale for KCN, its benefits, related works and research opportunities.
