New Name Matching Technology
Name Matching is the real challenge in Sanctions & AML compliance: Transliteration issues, Nicknames, Honorifics, Spelling errors etc. make name screening a challenge that can’t be solved with simple fuzzy algorithms.
For example, the cases below demonstrate just some of the various problems you can encounter in your screening process:
- Matching a Russian name in Cyrillic script against a list of names in latin script
- Various spelling variations a name can have after transliterating it into another language
- Nicknames or Initials
Our new API version helps with all these issues by utilizing the latest research and achievements in Natural Language Processing (NLP) and Artificial Intelligence (AI) of our technology partner Basis Technology. Basis Technology is a leader in the AI-based text analytics field and its technology is used by organizations such as Amazon, LinkedIn, U.S. Homeland Security and many more.
This technology helps reducing significantly False Positives while making sure that no real match slips through the cracks.
