Semantic Web[go to overview]
Summer Terms 2010
The lecture starts on Monday, June 21!
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.
