# Is there any text similarity databse available for phrases?

I want to train my application for phrase similarity. I want my model to predict similarity score for phrases as shown in below examples. ex-

International Business Machines = I.B.M
Synergy Telecom = SynTel
Beam inc = Beam Incorporate
Sir J J Smith = Johnson Smith
Alex, Julia = J Alex
James B. D. Joshi = James Joshi
James Beaty, Jr. = Beaty


Is there any dataset available to train this type of model?

• Can you please elaborate with an example of the prediction score you would want your model to predict? Is it going to be binary decision like similar(1) and not similar(0) OR you want percentage of similarity between given phrases? – Preet Feb 10 '19 at 11:37

Note that you are restricted to the extensive but ending knowledge on Wikipedia, for example Synergy Telecom/SynTel seems not to have an entry. Your creativity would be required to overcome this limitation.
