About you (please use English):
NamSor Gender API is quite unique in the way we combine the first name and the last name together, to recognize the likely cultural origin and gender at the same time, for higher precision and recall. Did you know? You would expect Jean, Julia, Karen to be female names. Karen is usually a female name, but in Armenia, it is a male name. Same for JULIÀ : in Spain/Catalunya is a male name. Or Jean, in France – male again. Culture matters! Most of the recent top level quantitative studies on gender using personal names have used NamSor Gender API : Elsevier Women in Science, EU Commission SheFigures, US National Science Foundation. We have also built tools for engagement of Women's Networks : CRM integration (nationbuilder, salesforce), dashboarding (powerBI, rapidminer, R language), search engines (Algolia).
