Ontoforce challenge at the SWAT4LS hackathon

Our gold sponsor Ontoforce is proposing a challenge for the upcoming SWAT4LS hackathon: define a linked-data representation of people, so that author names from PubMed affiliations can be linked to a URI. We offer an iPad mini to that participant that is able to link most author names in PubMed to a URI. It is allowed to update on existing sources.
