Aims, contents and method of the course

In the core combinations module "Semantic Technologies", the goal is to research and facilitate innovation in the digital transformation age. A model-based approach is employed to conceptualize, implement, and deploy semantic information systems. Thereby, individuals or teams develop semantic information systems while exploring the potential of "smart" models.

In the summer term, the necessary foundations are laid out and concepts for semantic information systems in the digital transformation age are created. In the winter term, semantic information systems are developed.

In the winter term, students acquire skills to:
* Specify technical architectures
* Implement and deploy semantic information systems that combine elements from modelling, knowledge engineering, and intelligent environments
* Apply validation methods in laboratory environments

Assessment and permitted materials

Individual or team-based realization of projects in the areas of semantic information systems. The projects will be based on the work from the “Semantic Technologies” course of the preceding summer term and are evaluated based on three milestones.

Part A (20%): Conceptualisation and plan
The students define and describe the project which they implement in this course.

Part B (30%): First prototype
The students hand in a prototype of their project implementing the main features, which were specified in part A. Additional a seminar paper describing their prototype must be submitted.

Part C (50%): Final submission
The students have to submit the final version of their project with the corresponding materials and a seminar paper.

Minimum requirements and assessment criteria

For a positive evaluation of the course, more or equal to 50% of requirements have to be fulfilled. The grading scale is defined as follows:
>=50% - 62,5%: sufficient (Genügend);
>62,5% - 75%: satisfactory (Befriedigend);
>75% - 87,5%: good (Gut);
>87,5%: very good (Sehr Gut)

Examination topics

The examination topics are based on the topics of the projects, the content form the preceding course of this core combinations module, and from and from the gatekeeper module "Knowledge Engineering". Additionally, skills and knowledge from the module "Metamodelling" are required.

Reading list

To be announced in the course.
