TEl students at the end of the course must know: Structure knowledge through taxonomies Know the main classification and indexing systems Description with metadata Linked Open Data and Linked Open, Resource Description Framework Standards: RDF and RDFs Management of descriptive logics for the creation and reasoning of ontologies To know the functions of the labels and collaborative actions. Relational and automatic semantic processing Use and apply the techniques, standards and other instruments used in the representation of electronic information for recovery by subject matter. Distinguish and evaluate the characteristics and uses of different content representation vocabularies (taxonomies, thesauri, ontologies and others) and choose the most appropriate for each type of information or electronic information services - Know and select the appropriate international standards for the creation of vocabularies. Develop controlled vocabularies: classification systems, alphabetical headings, functions, ensure consistency and updating and draft user manuals for use. Manage specific software ontologies, taxonomies and other vocabularies. Analyze, advise and train producers, users and customers of digital information services, in relation to the treatment and thematic recovery of their information. Use computer tools for the implementation, development and exploitation of semantic-based information systems that allow the processing and retrieval of human knowledge.
