CSC 150 - Introduction to the Semantic Web

Semester Hours: 3
Spring
The Semantic Web is an evolution of the current World Wide Web where data is now represented as meaningful knowledge. With the emergence of “big data,” search engines, social networks, and personal assistants such as Siri heavily use Semantic Web technologies in order to improve how machines understand data. This course will give an introduction to Semantic Web technologies and their applications. The crux of the Semantic Web is in semantic representation and reasoning of data using description logic ontologies. Thus, we will delve into different aspects of ontology theory, representation, creation, design, reasoning, and programming. Students will build Semantic Web applications throughout the course and learn the behind-the-scenes processing of data within modern Web-based systems.
