Computational Logic

Integrated Logic Systems - Part 1: Deduction Systems

Course Description

Lecturers:
Prof. Schroeder, Sebastian Voigt
Prerequisites:
none

The course meets the demand for practice-oriented subjects in the curriculum. By means of selected examples it will give an insight to various issues of how logic can be used in real world applications. The course breaks down into two parts:

  1. Deduction Systems - Students will be introduced to the design and use of various deduction systems: Prolog, Tableaux-Prover and Answer Set Programming.
  2. Semantic Search: Algorithms and Applications - Students will learn how link rules and reasoning with the web, databases, and distributed computing. Students will be introduced to the ideas underlying the semantic web including formats such as ontologies, XML, RDF, OWL. All techniques will be motivated with examples from bioinformatics, which provides a rich set of online data sources and problems amenable to semantic web technologies.
