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:
