Using Generative API for Better Data Quality in Databases and Files

Individual Name Matching Get Full Name Match Similarity Key API

This API provides a hashed similarity key from the input data used to match with other similar full name data. Use the generated similarity key, rather than the actual data itself, to match and/or sort individual name data by similarity. This avoids the problems of data inconsistency, misspellings, and name variations when matching within a single dataset, and can also help matching across datasets or for more advanced searching.

Heuristics, phonetics, specific knowledge bases, categorization hierarchies, contextual machine learning, and other various algorithms are used as the basis of our similarity key generation.

Example of generated similarity keys. The names that show the same similarity key are "similar" records.
