The complexity of cleansing a name

Following up on Winfried van Holland's blog post on having to cleanse 180 million names I thought I'd share a cool screenshot from a funny moment at the Human Inference office today, when we where experimenting with good ways to visualize our execution flow in DataCleaner...

The diagram shows 1) the steps that we go through in our filtering process, 2) the dependencies between them, 3) and a circle layout that we tried out and dismissed ;-)

Anyways, a funny moment and quite a nice view of just how much execution power you can extract from a tool like DataCleaner.

Looks like a telescope mirror that yet has to be polished :-)
