This lecture covers a lot of ground- from very basic to quite advanced. It begins by attempting to define the Semantic Web and explain its basic principles, which leads to a discussion of Linked Data and the principles which underpin it. The RDF data model is briefly described before moving on to how vocabularies are designed and reasoned over using RDF Schema and OWL.

Keywords: Web Ontology Language (OWL), RDF Schema, Triple, Turtle, HTTP URIs, Direct semantics
