Since 1901, the Nobel Prizes and the Prizes in Economic Sciences have been awarded 597 times. 950 people and organisations have received the award in the following categories: Physics, Chemistry, Physiology or Medicine, Literature, Peace, and Economic Sciences.
The official Nobel Prize Linked Data dataset is an authoritative source of information about Nobel Prizes and laureates. Importantly, the Nobel Prizes are often shared between multiple people, and the same person or organisation can receive multiple Nobel Prizes. RDF works really well for representing such relationships.
SPARQL has been widely adopted since first proposed as the query language for the Semantic Web. There are many SPARQL endpoints available today, both public and private, exposing various interlinked data sources that are all part of the global RDF data cloud.
SPARQL federation offers the mechanism for integrating RDF data distributed across multiple sources. It allows data consumers to retrieve and join data from those sources via a single query in a simple and elegant way. This way, it effectively exposes the data as a single integrated RDF graph.
