QuestionText similarity algorithm Pin
Maciej Los4-Mar-12 11:33

Suppose, i have a database, the database of companies. This database was made from few other databases. Now, i have a lot of companies with almost the same names and the same addresses. I'm sure that the "similar" companies are the same, in spite of fact that they differ each other few signs in the name and have different ID's.

The general question is: how to create a wizard which can help user to analyze database, to suggest for user which companies are probably the same? How to merge companies ID's and remove wrong inputs?

I'm sure that, i can't merge ID's without help from user.

In this[^] thread, i've learned that perfect algorithm doesn't exists. Now, i know methods to compare 2 strings to get to know how similar they are (percentage).
Pattern Matching: the Gestalt Approach[^],
Simil algorithm[^]

I'm trying to write algorithm which can:
1) compare the array of strings,
2) find a string with the longest similarity (biggest substring), to use it as a model,
3) define a similarity (in percentage) to the rest of strings, based on model.

It's time to begin a discuss!
