A public forum for discussing the design of software, from the user interface to the code architecture. Now closed.
I was considering building a system on a web application that would validate City and State information.
For example, normally you would have a list of states and/or cities.
I want to build a system where you type a city or state and have the system return a best guess.
Atlnta, Gorgia ... return Atlanta, Georgia.
The question, what are the best algorithms? What is this called? Would a Paul Graham bayesian filter work?

Peter Norvig talked about how google does it.
For example there are 500 spellings of Britney Spears and how do you find a match.
- Statistics of their use
- Is this the right word based on the context
- And also what has been published on other documents
And also they used topics on words disambiguation.
