Entity Resolution

What is entity resolution?

Entity resolution is the ability to resolve and identify relationships using linkages between disparate databases and using location as one of the inputs for resolution.

How is entity resolution used?

Entity resolution is used in fraud detection in banking and insurance to identify individual accounts that may contain variations in content but are nonetheless related. For example, the name John Smith may be a single entry in one database but Jon Smith in another. Jon may be a misspelling or it may be the proper name of a different individual. Using entity resolution would determine if both individuals were the same or different.
