My courses

  • WebInt / Fall 2016 - Interaction Design and Development of Modern Web Applications

    Human–computer interaction (HCI) is the study of interaction between people (users) and computers, as the intersection of computer science, behavioral sciences, design and several other fields of study. This course aims to provide the basic concepts of user centered design when developing web applications. It will offer a deep dive presentation of modern web technologies: HTML5, CSS3 and Javascript. Finally, this course will provide techniques for evaluating user interfaces.

    Teaching and Learning Methods:Lectures and Lab sessions (group of 2-3 students)

    Course Policies:Attendance to Lab session is mandatory.

  • WebSem / Spring 2017 - An Introduction to Semantic Web technologies

    The Semantic Web is an evolving extension of the World Wide Web in which the semantics of information and services on the web is defined. It derives from W3C director Sir Tim Berners-Lee's vision of the Web as a universal medium for data, information, and knowledge exchange. This course is a guided tour for a number of W3C recommendations allowing to represent (RDF/S, SKOS, OWL) and query (SPARQL) knowledge on the web as well as the underlying logical formalisms of these languages, their syntax and semantics. We will present the problems of modeling ontologies and reconciling data on the web. Finally, we will explain how to extract knowledge from textual documents using natural language processing and information extraction technologies.
