    • Answer to question #10:
      Not sure if the problem of fuzzy merging can be addressed within the framework of traditional databases. Say you have a table A with 10,000 users (key is user ID), a table B with 50,000 users (key is user ID). You could created a user mapping table C with three fields:
      userID (= key),
      Alternate_UserID (this field would also be a user ID) and
      Probability (probability that userID = Alternate_UserID).
      This table would be populated after some machine learning algorithm had been applied to tables A and B to identify similar users and the probability they match. Make sure that you only include (in table C) records where probability is above (say) 0.25, otherwise you risk exploding your database.
