Semantic Web Technologies

184.268 - Technologien für das Semantische Web VU, 2008W, 2.0h, TU Vienna

Lecture by Axel Polleres.


The goal of this lecture with assignments is to provide deeper insights into languages, standards and technologies of the Semantic Web. The special focus here lies on formal Semantics. Further we will show how these standards can be used for inference and querying on the Web, Semantic Web search and Web Services.

Even if the attendance of the course 188.399 "Einführung in Semantic Web VU" is not a prerequisite to attend this course, the present course may be viewed as a continuation where some of the topics presented in 188.399 are presented with from a more theoretical point of view. Prior attendance of 188.399 is thus recommended.
