Learning Outcome:

Students who have completed this module should understand the topics covered in the lectures, and be able to express and apply them. They should be able to independently acquire similar knowledge and have a basic understanding of semantic systems.

 

Contents:

Ontologies, which are consensual specifications of knowledge in a particular domain, form the backbone of the semantic web. Important topics covered in the lecture are: representation mechanisms (like RDF, RDFS, OWL) for data, meta-data and ontologies in the semantic web; knowledge graphs and linked data; semantic annotations; different reasoning and querying techniques for retrieving, filtering and combining information on the web; and applications.

 

Methods:

Lecture with interactive elements, flipped classroom, course project group work and paper. Assessment is based on a single examination at the end of the course and the final group work paper.

 

Assessment:

Course examination according to § 7, statute section on "study-law regulations".
