Name searching & matching algorithms


Actual tools for searching and comparing names and first names work on phonetical or orthographical Levenshtein base or use key words. These tools however are oriented on Western European languages and give issues for other languages, which in actual sociological context becomes more and more a problem. We have indeed more and more clients with African, Asian or Eastern European names.

The challenges of this stage is to look for improvements to the existing tools, or even alternatives if other algorithms offer better results. We also want to go further and see if it’s possible to extend the algorithms for matching e-mail addresses, postal addresses or other information.

We offer you an internship in a flexible environment. Next to this, your commute is reimbursed and you can enjoy your lunch for free at our company restaurant.
