Intelligent matching is a type of data management technique in which data is searched, indexed and retrieved from a database through a series of artificial intelligence based data sorting and matching algorithms. Intelligent matching makes it possible to find data based on the principles of semantics, where human-like searching and inference techniques are applied to each query.
Techopedia explains Intelligent Matching
Intelligent matching is primarily used in maintaining and extracting databases, specifically those that are very large and complex in nature. It is generally implemented within database software, business intelligence solutions or a big data analytics application. It works by applying reasoning-based data matching techniques, which eventually deliver ideal or substantially related query results.
Some of the services intelligent matching provides include:
The ability to scan each object for duplication within the target database
The ability to remove duplicates within databases
The ability to search and extract relevant information from big data repositories
The ability to compare data, objects or files for similarities
