WE IMPROVED THE ACCURACY OF OUR EMAIL API BY 30% Oct 2, 2017

During the last few months, we revised and completely redesigned the backend of our email interface in 3 steps. With the new interface it is now possible to break up email addresses that do not have a clearly distinguishable separator between the first and last name. Before the update, names had to be separated by a dot or hyphen for the email address to be properly broken up. With the new interface, email addresses such as kathleenevans44@gmail.com can now be broken up without any problems. How do we do this: We implemented a multi-stage process using machine learning to check the frequency of any possible first and last name combination to provide the best possible result for each case. Internal tests and analysed have shown that result quality improved by more than 30%.
