A dating site beyond personal
When filling out a profile for this dating app, users can respond to an extensive questionnaire about their personal traits as well as the traits they are looking for in a partner.
For example, someone could report that they are very messy and looking for someone moderately messy.
By monitoring both user input and user behavior, AI in dating applications truly gets to know the most holistic version of the user.
It goes beyond the user’s own notion of themself to reveal truths about the type of partner they are really looking for.
Hinge presents this information to the user with a notification at the top of the screen that lets the person know of high potential compatibility with the given profile.
Research shows that since launching this “Most Compatible” feature, Hinge been able to guide its users toward people more suited for them.
And because most dating sites ask users to give consent for their data to be used for research purposes, this online courting has played out like an enormous social science experiment, recording people's moment-by-moment interactions and judgments.
Bumble’s AI program takes into account user preferences as well as sign compatibility when presenting a potential partner to its user.
Matching zodiac signs is another instance of dating app technology working with user data to create the most compatible matches.
Hinge calls itself “the dating app that was designed to be deleted.” It uses a Nobel Prize winning algorithm to put its users together.
Known as the Gale-Shipley algorithm, this method looks at users’ preferences, acceptances, and rejections to pair people together.
Ok Cupid would then present the user with potential partners who are moderately messy looking for people who are very messy.
