Mål og innhald
The course introduces students to information technologies that not only store and manipulate data, but also explicitly represent the meaning of the data. Students will become familiar with the theoretical background as well as popular technologies and resources in use today. The aim is to give students a thorough understanding of the way information can be represented in a way that enables interoperability and reasoning over the data sets. The theoretical studies will be supplemented with practical exercises in information modeling and reasoning.
Upon completion of the course the student should be able to:
- explain the basic concepts for representing the semantics of data.
- explain the basic concepts related to logical basis of reasoning with semantically-enriched data.
- describe the standards for semantic technologies, for example RDF and SPARQL.
- design meaningful information representations.
- use reasoning techniques on semantically-enriched data sets.
understand and be able to use information from a large number of public data sets.integrate information represented in different data sets.
