Semantic Web

Announcements

Overview

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. This course will give an overview and introduction to core and current semantic web technologies.

Required Knowledge

Basic knowledge about logics and data engineering recommended.

Acquired Competence

The student will be enabled to design and develop semantic Web applications. The student will be enabled to progress Semantic Web technologies in order to broaden and facilitate their use. The student will be enabled to understand the interaction of different standards, their technical implications as well as the social processes that underly various Semantic Web applications.

Exercise

Tutorials will be in rooms E.413 and C.206 on Thursdays from 16:00 to 18:00. There will be two classes in parallel, one given by Dominik Brosius, the other by Fiorela Ciroku. They cover the same topics.

Students will deepen their understanding of this course during the exercises. There will be eight assignments. Assignments can be accomplished in groups of at most three people. Students need to accomplish at least 60% of the total points in order to attend the final exam. Plagiarism is strictly forbidden and will result in disqualification from the final exam, of both sides of the plagiarism (copying and being copied). Students are also expected to present and explain some of the assignments.

You can post questions regarding the assignments or the course in our newsgroup: "infko.semanticweb". Feel encourage to answer or comment on existing questions or chime in with ongoing discussions there.

Exam

TBD.
