This course will focus on the SPARQL query language (used to query RDF
and semantic data) as well as the concept of the semantic 'triple' and
RDF triplestores (a type of database for semantic data). Topics will
include: the fundamentals of SPARQL how to write SPARQL queries against
RDF tripe stores and interact with existing triple stores, how SPARQL is
used to access, disseminate, and exchange semantic data on the web.
We'll also spend a good deal of time studying how semantic systems are
implemented on the web by looking at working open access examples of
semantic data searches, triplestore, and semantic interfaces on the web.
One of the primary goals of this course is for the student to
understand how semantic data is used, accessed, and disseminated on the
This course can be taken as one of six courses needed to earn our Certificate in XML and RDF-Based Systems, and may assume a certain level of background knowledge covered in other courses in the sequence.
