About this book

Introduction

Identity matching has become an integral part of many business and security processes, from border control and crime investigation to anti-money laundering and client data management.

Following years of struggling with computational techniques, the new linguistic identity matching approach finally offers an appropriate way for such processes to balance the risk of missing an identity match with the costs of overmatching. This new paradigm for searching identity data focuses on understanding the influences that languages, writing systems and cultural conventions have on proper names.

In this book, the authors draw on their many years of identity matching experience to explain why linguistic knowledge is the key to improving both the recall and precision of identity search systems, and how organisations can best harness this knowledge to improve the way they work with identity data.
