Abdourahim SYLLA, Iragael JOLY


Introduction to Knowledge Engineering
Data VS. Information VS. Knowledge
Types of knowledge
Role of Knowledge Engineering for AI
Hybrid AI: monitoring, simulation, expert knowledge
Knowledge representations (frame, rules, FOL, semantic networks, Triples…)
Expert systems
Knowledge engineering VS. Knowledge management
TP. Find and decorticate a use case of KE in I.40
Ontologies and Linked data
Methods for capturing expert knowledge
Modelling languages RDF, RDFS, OWL, NoSQL Graph
Reasoning with inference engine (SPARQL & RDF query language)
Use cases of ontologies in industry 4.0
TP. Development of an ontology with Protégé
Case-based reasoning
Models for representing cases
Similarity measures & cases retrieval methods
Methods for reusing similar cases for decision aid
Discussion on case base updating
TP. Evaluation of a new product / a new project


Students will have taken and validated the following courses: Probability and Statistics; Programming with R, Programming with Python


This weighting is compatible with the organization of distance learning courses and exams

At least 2 marks for practical work or continuous assessment: TP1 and TP2
One exam grade : E1

Grade = 0.4*((TP1+TP2)/2) + 0.6 * E1

Cette pondération est compatible avec une organisation des enseignements et des examens en distanciel

Au moins 2 notes de TP ou contrôle continu: TP1 et TP2
Une note d'examen : E1

Note = 0.4*((TP1+TP2)/2) + 0.6 * E1


The course exists in the following branches:

  • Curriculum - Engineer student Master SCM - Semester 7
  • Curriculum - Engineer student Master PD - Semester 7
see the course schedule for 2023-2024
