Content

In a nutshell, semantic can be defined as the interpretation of syntax. In this lecture you will learn how to structure (~model) data and knowledge, how to express it in conceptual entity-relationship models, RDF(S), XML, N3, and OWL, and how to access it using XPath, Xquery and SPARQL.

Please be present at the very first lecture (lecture 0, Oct 24) – we will talk about how the course is organised and how you will be graded!

Please arrive on time for the lectures, we start at 13:00 sharp.
