Semantic Web

The ROOM of this course is K-208.

Course materials and detailed infos will be hosted here:

Outline

Semantic web describes data on the web maintaining its semantics in such a way that other web applications may "understand" the meaning of the data with only little effort. Semantic web has developed from a research initiative in the late 20th century into a fast growing infrastructure for application domains, such as bioinformatics or eGovernment. This infrastructure is driven by W3C standards as well as by methods and technologies from a diverse area of computer science disciplines, such as artificial intelligence, databases and human-computer interaction.
