Knowldge Engineering Course


                                                            Knowledge Engineering Course

Course Outline
This course aims to enrich students with theoretical and practical skills in conceptual modeling, knowledge representation and management, and modern knowledge-based web applications. The course consists of four modules: (i) Conceptual Modeling: conceptual analyses using Object Role Modeling, business rules, contradiction and implication between rules, conceptual schema optimization and engineering. (ii) Formal specifications languages, description logic reasoning, RDF, RDFS, OWL, Linked Data, RDFa (iii) Ontology Engineering and Lexical Semantics: methodologies for building and modeling application ontologies, Ontologies vs. data schemes, lexical semantics and linguistic ontologies, WordNet and Global WordNets, Arabic Ontology (iv) Modern knowledge-based applications, which may include data integration and interoperability, Semantic Web, multilingual search engines, bioinformatics and the Gene Ontology, Digital Libraries, Semantic-based Web Services, among others.

     Part IV : Modern Knowledge-based Applications
Each student is expected to write a synthesis paper and deliver a presentation about one of the listed topics. The paper should answer a question like “why and how ontologies are used in Data Integration”, “why and how ontologies are in e-government and e-municipality” – from your own view point. Students are expected to read and cite (at least 5 refereed papers) to support their viewpoints. Citing websites and Wikis is allowed but should be limited; the extreme majority of the references should be recent research papers. Again, the paper should NOT be a summary of others’ papers, but rather, it should represent your (own) opinion -and your opinion should reflect the state-of-art in research and possible applications related to the selected topic.  The highest mark will be given to students who (i) cite the most important research and applications related to the topic, (ii) give better criticism and comparison on these paper, and present innovative ideas and solutions, and (iii) his/her English and writing style is perfect. The paper should be written in this template: https://dl.dropbox.com/u/7531499/KnowEng12.SynthesisPaper.YourName.v1..doc
Students are expected to give a seminar presentation in the class (20 minutes only) about their paper.
Deadlines:
  • 3/12/2012 First draft of the presentations should be delivered in PowerPoint format – so to get general comments.
  • 7/12/2012 First draft of the Synthesis Paper will be presented in the class – so to get general comments.
  • 7/12/2012 Final PowerPoint Presentation: Each student will be given 20 minutes only to present her/his topic in the class.
  • 20/12/2012 final Synthesis Paper in PDF format.
