We cover advanced topics in knowledge representation and reasoning (KRR), with a focus on issues which are important for the Semantic Web. In particular, we cover a wide range of traditional KRR techniques and how they impact state-of-the-art research related to the Semantic Web. Guided by the instructor, each student will prepare and deliver a substantial presentation covering both the fundamentals of a KRR approach, and one or more recent and prominent research results related to it. Emphasis is put on controversial discussion in class of the value of state-of-the-art research for future developments of the field.
