Who should take this course?

This special topics course is available to advanced undergraduates and graduate students. It will introduce the notion of the Semantic Web, provide an overview of the underlying theory and technology, cover existing tools and practices, and highlight current and potential applications.

Having taken a database or AI course will be helpful as will some familiarity with XML and other Web technologies.

The course will be approximately half lecture and half seminar. Students will be expected to read, discuss and present current research papers. In the first half of the course there will be a series of homework assignments designed to get students familiar with the technology. In the second half, students will work on individual or group projects.

If you are unsure if want to take the course and have any questions, feel free to contac me by email. You can also leave a comment on this post.
