Entity resolution, also known as entity linking, record linkage, or data deduplication, is a data management process used to identify and link records that correspond to the same entity across different data sources. This is done even when the records have variations or inconsistencies.
In the music industry, entity resolution is crucial for accurate and organized sound recording catalogs, specifically for music publishers, record labels, and streaming platforms.
Entity resolution can be used in sound recordings in the following ways:
Detecting duplicates: Identifying and removing duplicate sound recordings in a music catalog ensures a cleaner and more efficient list without any repetition.
Aiding music rights societies: Entity resolution is crucial for music rights management, linking sound recordings to copyright holders, publishers, and performers for proper licensing and royalty distribution.
Metadata enrichment: Sound recordings often contain metadata, such as artist names, album titles, release dates, and genre tags. Entity resolution can improve metadata accuracy and consistency by linking sound recordings to the right databases.
Continuous Data Maintenance:
Entity resolution requires ongoing maintenance for updates. Regular checks and resolution processes are essential to maintaining the accuracy of the catalog.
Scalability: Scalable entity resolution systems are crucial for efficiently handling the increasing size of music catalogs. This ensures that the resolution process remains effective as the catalog expands.
