Merge ToolBox (MTB)
The GRLC maintains the Merge ToolBox (MTB), a free academic record linkage and de-duplication program written in Java. Features of MTB include probabilistic and distance-based linkage techniques. MTB is free for academic use only.
Software from previous projects:
We developed a protocol for determining string similarities in a privacy-preserving manner (Safelink). The main idea is to store q-grams from identifying strings in Bloom filters using cryptographic hash functions (HMACs). Note that Safelink is free for academic use only.
Test Data Generator (TDGen)
TDGen is a pre-built workflow for KNIME, allowing the user to insert errors into test data for Record Linkage testing purposes. There is a publication including an installation guide for TDGen.
