Python Package Added for Name Match Scoring

by Interzoid Team

Posted on February 7th, 2023

Python package for Individual Name Match Scoring

A Python package has been created for the Python Package Index for easy use of our Name Matching Scoring API. The package provides a simple interface to call the API with a single line of code from within Python. After importing the package, you can submit individual person names programmatically to compare, get back a score, and then use that score as part of any other logic. The API is described in more detail within the API reference documentation on our Website.

A call to the function obtains a match score of two individual person names from 0-100, where 100 is the highest matching score, based on how closely two individual full names match. The scoring is based on a series of tests, algorithms, AI, and an ever-growing body of Machine Learning-based generated knowledge. These algorithms get smarter over time. As the context of the data is known, in this case individual person names, it performs far better than generic string comparison algorithms.

To use the service, you must first register for an Interzoid account and obtain an API license key which includes free trial credits. Once you have done that, you can start using the package within your Python code to submit names for analysis.
