Corona information: the lectures of this course will be streamed live via Zoom. We will try to make recordings available if possible. For the exercises, there will be live Q&A sessions via Zoom. The exam, however, is planned to be held on campus.
Note that the first date of this lecture is Friday, 2 October.
The term „Semantic Web“ was coined in 2001 when Tim Berners Lee (the inventor of the World Wide Web) and others presented their vision of an intelligent web in the „Scientific American“.

Ten years later, Google announced their knowledge graph, which has been the most well known application of semantic web technologies and ideas to date.
This course gives an introduction to the technical foundations of Semantic Web Technologies, including knowledge representation and query languages, as well as logical inference. More specifically, it covers the following contents:
Since the autumn term 2020 starts later due to the Corona pandemic, we'll have a slightly condensed lecture period.
