Although it is an important subset of the increasingly popular Internet of Things (IoT), the Web of Things (WoT) did not attract enough research and development attention in academia and business, worth of its value. We believe that this is due to its numerous challenges, especially when it comes to providing Web services to and from a myriad of heterogeneous devices with limited resources, random mobility, constrained network connections, and lack of standardized communication protocols. We argue that these devices should be augmented with artificial intelligence techniques for an enhanced management of their resources and an easier construction of Web applications integrating Real World Things (RWT). To this end, we present in this paper a new classification of the WoT challenges and highlight the opportunities of embedding smartness into RWT. We also present our vision of Intelligent WoT by proposing a multiagent system-based architecture for intelligent Web service composition. Finally, we discuss this architecture within the context of an Intelligent VANET-WoT scenario.
