Alright, check this out! There’s this dating app called SciMatch, right? They claim to be using some crazy social science and AI stuff to match up compatible partners. And get this, instead of making you fill out a whole dating profile, all they need is one selfie from you. Just one!
Here’s how it works: their AI algorithm examines your face and looks for personality traits. Then it recommends potential partners based on those traits. It’s like having a digital wingman that analyzes your face and finds you the perfect match.
Now, the app itself is free to use, but they’ve got an interesting feature. You can actually pay to upload a photo of your celebrity crush, and the app will try to find you a lookalike partner. That’s some next-level stuff!
The app was created by these two sisters, Yanina and Viktoryia Strylets. Yanina is a data science graduate, and Viktoryia is a computer science graduate. They based their app on a study that explored the connection between facial images and personality characteristics.
The study discovered that machine learning can identify personalized features based on facial features alone. However, they did mention that using profile images of the subjects would make the AI recognition system even more accurate.
Yanina mentioned in an interview that the app’s AI algorithm, named A.I. Ruby, has been trained on a massive database of millions of faces associated with different character traits. And get this, it’s accurate around 87% of the time! That’s pretty impressive, I must say.
One psychology professor, Paul Eastwick from the University of California, Davis, though, he called it “complete wizardry.” I guess it’s hard for some people to wrap their heads around this technology.
But SciMatch isn’t the only one using AI to spice up dating. Other companies like Match Group, who own Tinder, Hinge, and OkCupid, are also planning to integrate AI features into their apps. Tinder, for example, has this cool tool to help users choose the best photos for their profiles.
And here’s something interesting: users themselves are starting to use AI tools to improve their dating game. They’re using AI algorithms to write catchy bios and generate captivating responses. It’s like having a digital dating coach right in your pocket.
But wait, it gets even crazier. Some people have actually given up on finding human love altogether and are turning to AI for companionship. I mean, seriously, there are folks out there who claim to be falling in love with AI chatbots. Love, man. What a wild ride!
So, yeah, SciMatch and AI-powered dating apps like it are definitely causing a stir in the dating world. Who knows, maybe one day we’ll all find love with the help of some advanced algorithms and facial recognition technology. It’s a brave new world out there, my friends. Stay curious!
