Parity Computing Upgrades Profiler System
At the recent AAP/PSP meeting, Parity Computing, Inc. announced the public release of version 3 of its Profiler System software for automatically creating organizational and professional profiles. The platform can identify people and institutions from diverse data sources (such as research literature, books, patents, press releases, and company Web pages) and can organize them into unique, unambiguous profiles. The company said this enables researchers to stay on top of the achievements of colleagues, to track who's who in related fields, to understand the research strengths of individual institutions, and to identify individuals with compatible research interests.
Version 3 adds the following capabilities:
- Scalability to handle massive data sources
- Improved accuracy to merge and disambiguate names
- Customer interface to combine and split profiles and control updates
- Client management of individual privacy preferences
