The Semantic Web is the second-generation WWW, enriched by machine-processable information which supports the user in his tasks. For instance, today’s search engines are already quite powerful, but still too often return excessively large or inadequate lists of hits. Machine-processable information can point the search engine to the relevant pages and can thus improve both precision and recall. To reach this goal, the Semantic Web will be built up in different levels: global naming scheme (URIs), standard syntax for describing data (RDF), standard means of describing the properties of the data (rdf-schema) and the standard means of describing relationships between the data items (ontologies).
The objectives of the course are:
•To spread the information about Semantic Web and the technologies associated with it.
•To emphasize the role and importance of using Semantic Web.
•To emphasize the need of Semantic Web to the teaching community.
•To discuss about the research issues in Semantic Web.
•To reveal about the advantages of using Semantic Web in applications such as Searching, Travel agency etc.
•To experiment with Semantic Web tools such as protégé.
