This course is far more than learning the syntax of the Semantic Web or how to use tools to implement semantic based systems (although it certainly does cover both of those). This course is about learning how to think and design in semantics.
We have been continually evolving this course over the ten years we have been teaching it. We are always adding new technologies and new techniques to the course. Over the course of time we’ve learned how students learn this new material and have continued to adapt the course materials.
In this latest incarnation we return to the four-day format (we had expanded the course to six days to cover all the additional material, but we have subsequently figured out how to compress most of the new material back into a 4 day format that seems to work better for most attendees).

Day 1) Introduction to Semantic Technology – What is it? What is it good for?

Key concepts overview, appropriate for those who:

  • May not be using the technology on a day-to-day basis
  • Want to understand how it works and its potential
  • Want to invite one colleague to the first day as a guest

Day 2) Working with Triples: Hands-on with Graph Databases, Triple Stores, & Queries

Hands-on learning by doing:

  • Graph database, URIs, triples
  • Representing knowledge in a triple store
  • RDF, SPARQL and the Linked Open Data Cloud

Day 3) Semantic Meta Data: Classes, Restrictions & the Open World

Covering a lot of ground:

  • How classes are similar but different than they are in traditional technology
  • How inference really works
  • What formal representation is all about
  • An introduction to Description Logics, the underpinning of OWL
  • The 20% of the OWL and RDFS spec that you will use on a day-to-day basis
  • The traps in the other 80%

Day 4) Ontology Design & Semantic Architecture

Putting it all together:

  • Pragmatic considerations of implementing the technology:
    • Ontology modularization, use of upper ontologies, methodology for enterprise ontology development
    • Semantic rules (what are they, when to use them)
    • How to incorporate taxonomies into an ontology design
    • How to use RDFShapesfor constraint management
  • An example of extracting data from a relational database using R2RML
  • How semantic technology plays a key part in the Data Centric Revolution
