Validating Semantic Knowledge Graphs Using SHACL

Event Details

LocationRoom 6 (Virtual)
Date May 2, 2022
Time10:30 AM to 12:00 PM

The key topics of this tutorial will be

  • Terminology and concepts of semantic knowledge graphs
  • Comparing SHACL and the Web Ontology Language (OWL)
  • Introduction to SHACL

With hands-on live coding:

  • Building shapes for ABoxes
  • Validation and validation errors

You would need some experience in RDF before attending this tutorial, but no prior experience with SHACL is needed.

We will use a web based SHACL engine that can be accessed through any browser. No installation required. However, a brief demonstration of RDF4J’s SHACL engine will also be given through a Java application, that will be accessible for anyone through GitHub.

After attending this tutorial you should expect to have gained knowledge about how to constraint your RDF data using SHACL, perform validation, and be able to interpret the validation result.
