This course focuses on the capabilities, methods and techniques of Semantic Artificial Intelligence (AI) and their applications to support Knowledge Management (KM) tasks and systems. Semantic AI denotes an emerging family of technologies that enjoy large-scale up-take in the industry. 

Firstly, it will cover the general description of Semantic AI capabilities relevant to the KM tasks and systems. Secondly, the course will cover applications, methods and techniques of Semantic AI in real-world use cases, which include: 

  • Data Integration
  • Search and knowledge discovery
  • Knowledge analytics
  • AI system auditability
Learning outcomes

After successful completion of the course, students understand the capabilities of Semantic AI technologies and apply these technologies to solve problems in Knowledge Management and other related disciplines. The course will strengthen the understanding of the existing applications of advanced Semantic AI approaches and furthermore allow a better evaluation of the practical applicability of such technologies for cases at hand. 

Furthermore, students will get familiar with the recent research developments in this field.
