Registration Details

  • Name: Damegender
  • System Name:  damegender
  • Type: non-GNU software and documentation
  • License: GNU General Public License v3 or later


The gender detection from a name is useful to make gender studies from social networks, mailing lists,
software repositories, papers, etc. These studies are required to measure the gender gap and to find
solutions to reduce it.

Nowadays, there are several Application Programming Interfaces to guess gender from a name. This
kind of software has the database based on propietary databases and the software is not free, so some
scientific works are difficult to reproduce

In this projec, we are envisioning how to solve these problems, offering a tool written in Python and Bash released with GPLv3:
+ To use and compare these apis.
+ To give a fully free solution using Open Data.
+ To provide Machine Learning to predict strings, that’s useful to guess diminutives or nicknames.

Other Software Required:

+ markdown
+ nltk
+ requests
+ numpy
+ scikit-learn
+ unidecode
+ pandas
+ matplotlib
+ json2html
