Semantic Web and Controlled Vocabularies
- Lesson title: Semantic Web and Controlled Vocabularies
- Keywords: Controlled vocabulary, Terminology, Ontology
- Objective/Description: In this lesson, we will get an overview of Semantic Web followed by an introduction to the spectrum of controlled vocabularies with a focus on those where community agreements play an important role (i.e., terminologies), particularly ontologies and their main elements.
- Learning outcomes:
- Understanding what Semantic web is and how it relates to the Web
- Explaining the relation between semantics and controlled vocabularies
- Distinguishing differences across terminologies in terms of formality and semantics support
- Explaining what an ontology is and describing its main characteristics and elements
