INST2006: Semantic Web

The Semantic Web was proposed as an evolution of the current Web aiming to establish meaning to web data, so that it can be shared, reasoned with and re-used by both humans and machines. The aim of the module is to make the students familiar with the basic ideas of Semantic Web and its main technologies. It describes briefly the theoretical background of these technologies, but gives more emphasis on practical aspects, such as ontology engineering and Semantic Web applications.

Learning outcomes: Students will understand the underlying ideas of Semantic Web and its layered architecture, and will become familiar with its main technologies including ontology, ontology languages and query languages. They will also learn how to apply such technologies to develop knowledge-based models for business domains and applications.
