Title: SYSTEMS AND METHODS FOR MODIFYING SPELLING OF LIST OF NAMES BASED ON A SCORE ASSOCIATED WITH A FIRST NAME
Abstract:
Systems and methods are disclosed herein for modifying the spelling of a list of names (104) based on a score associated with a first name. The systems and methods may receive a media asset, determine a first source (102) of data corresponding to the media asset, and receive, from the first source of data, a list of names, each name in the list of names being associated with a respective copy of the media asset. The systems and methods may generate a reduced list of names (108), retrieve a criterion from storage, determine a set of scores corresponding to each name from the reduced list of names based on the criterion, select a first name from the reduced list of names based on the set of scores, and modify the spelling of a second name (106) in the list of names based on the first name.
