Required knowledge:Basic knowledge in web technologies and logics is expected. Basic application development skills are required.
Learning objectives:After completing the course, students are able to…
  • understand concepts, technologies and languages used the create semantic knowledge graphs
  • apply the learned concepts in order to build a semantic knowledge graph for an individual business domain or application
  • utilize existing knowledge graphs for individual business applications
  • differentiate semantic knowledge graphs from other graph-based data structures
  • build ontologies and define the formal, model-theoretic semantics to be used in a knowledge graph
  • use state of the art ontology creation and management tools
  • query semantic knowledge graphs using standard semantic query languages (e.g. SPARQL)
Content:The module consists of 7 main parts:
1. Introduction to knowledge graph terminology
2. Knowledge representation frameworks
3. Methods for ontology and knowledge graph construction
4. Query languages for semantic knowledge graphs (SPARQL)
5. Application and use cases of semantic knowledge graphs (information integration, query answering, navigation support etc.)
6. Individual project work
7. Final presentation and written assessment

The following topics will be addressed
  • Fundamentals of semantic knowledge graph
  • Knowledge organization systems
  • Semantic knowledge representation frameworks
  • Ontology languages
  • Methods for ontology and knowledge graph creation
  • Query languages for semantic knowledge graphs
  • Utilization of knowledge graphs in real-world applications
