  • Comparing Strings (Street Names) With Machine Learning
    2 projects | | 11 Nov 2021
    When comparing strings (in our case street names), there are plenty of off-the-shelf features that can be used, such as those provided by the jellyfish. This package also provides a number of phonetic encodings. We can combine an encoding with a metric, such as Levenshtein Distance, to measure the phonetic similarity between two street names.
  • How to match names which differ slightly?

    You can use a library like jellyfish which implements a bunch of string comparison algorithms, you'd just have to experiment and see which one gives the best results for you. I think I've had the best luck with Jaro-Winkler, then looking at the % match result and picking a cutoff above which I have good confidence that the match is real. It's still not perfect, and I really don't see how your last example would work with just about any automated comparison.
