I'm learning about the semantic web and I'm trying to wrap my head around the idea of triples. As far as I understand it, RDF is a method of modelling data. It's a representation of how data is structured or connected to each other over the web.
RDF uses triples to represent the data structure, in the order of subject-predicate-object. Each actual data item is taken from it's URI. The URI matches data across different servers. A shortcut for URI in modelling RDF is using the Turtle Format, which is qnames (<namespaces>: <identifier>) + triples.
With this in mind, we have the statement:
David Lectures The Algorithms Course in 2017-18.
First question, where would this statement come from, or what is a statement in the context of a semantic web?
Second question, how would you model this in RDF? The way I see it, we would first determine the triple.
The subject is David. The predicate is Lectures. The object is Algorithms. What's the 2017-18?
