Advanced Computer Science (Semantic Technologies)

The course looks at semantic technologies which is used to describe languages, software, methodologies and models that are aimed at representing and manipulating metadata which encodes explicit meaning; by doing so, the possibility of using machine processing in order to help us search, organize and understand our data is opened up; semantic technologies are being most visibly applied in efforts to build a semantic web - an application of such technologies in a web setting and at web scale; this pathway combines intelligent reasoning technologies from the logic and automated reasoning theme, with web and ontology related topics from the advanced web technologies theme; students therefore gain insight into both topics, and how they can be used and combined fruitfully in ontology-based applications and the semantic web.
