Wikipedia People Instant Fuzzy Search

The Wikipedia People Fuzzy Search is a test application from SoftCorporation Lab, which allows finding a person record even if the search query contains multiple misspelled words. It may happen when the user is typing unfamiliar person's name or a foreign name spelled in English. The program searches data extracted in September 2012 from the English language Wikipedia database. Only Wikipedia records with "persondata" meta information are extracted and only full name (page title), "persondata" meta fields, and Categories associated with this person are indexed. Total number of people extracted from the Wikipedia database is 1,008,369.

Programs like this are useful for enterprise employee search, where the approximate employee name and other criteria, for example skills, department, phone, location can be combined in one simple query, which is executed as you type.
