Abstract: Ontologies and the Semantic Web
Ontologies and the Semantic Web are becoming increasingly important
when planning for and building intelligent applications.
This set of talks provides an introduction to the area.
The first tutorial
provides a high level overview covering what ontologies
are and how and where they can be applied to solve problems today.
It is expected to be broadly accessible.
The second tutorial provides a more in depth introduction and
introduces more details about how to build ontologies, features
of ontology languages, and tools that can support ontology-based applications.
