There are four common matching algorithms used for attribute deduplication processes: absolute match, partial match, Soundex and lookup match. These algorithms can be run against the data and, once the percentage match score is computed, you can decide whether to discard or store the data.
As an exercise, I’ve implemented these four matching algorithms using F# pattern matching and asynchronous programming features to quickly calculate the aggregate match score.
Two crows with one stone.
