Presentation of GendRE Genderize API at Paris DataGeek

Posted by

Yesterday, we presented NamSor API to predict the gender of personal names at Paris DataGeek MeetUp – and what’s coming in NamSor Gender API v0.0.15.

The new version will combine the traditional dictionary approach with a more advanced sociolinguistic approach to deliver unmatched precision in all the main languages/cultures/geographies/alphabets. It will be deployed in September or earlier.

In the meantime, you can already try our current API v0.0.14 offering one of the largest international dictionary (~800 thousand names), with its limitations but already excellent accuracy.

Thanks to Ori Pekelman for the invitation, I was happy to discover this vibrant community of DataScientists! However, this is yet another profession where women are scarce. You can get the full presentation here 20140626_ParisDataGeeks_Pitch_vF.pdf in PDF format or online here.
