Individual Name Matching Parsed Get Full Name Parsed Match Similarity Key API

This API provides a hashed similarity key from the input data used to match with other similar first name and last 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, as well as providing the ability to match across datasets.

Generative AI, a specialized language model, 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.
