This introductory course teaches students the basics of RDF, RDFS, and some parts of OWL. No Prior RDF knowledge necessary, but familiarity with XML and some basic Computer Science concepts a plus. We use exercises and examples to reinforce learning, and cover the following:
What is RDF?
• Graph Model, Triples
• URLs and Namespacing
• Serialization Formats (RDF-XML, Turtle, NTriples)
• RDF Querying
• Distributed data merging
What is RDFS?
• What it adds to RDF
• RDFS Constructs & Inference (type, class, property, subClassOf, subpropertyOf, range, domain, label, comment)
Introduction to OWL
• What it adds to RDFS
• Ways it is more restrictive than RDF and RDFS
• OWL Constructs & Inference (Object vs. Data property, sameAs, differentFrom, functional and inverse-functional, properties, transitivity, some restrictions, isjointness, etc.)
• Different Species and Profiles of OWL
• Open World Assumption
