Can an algorithm really predict love at first sight? | citizentekk

theclairbyrd‘s insight:

I’ve always questioned the efficacy of online dating websites that use robots and math to select possible partner choices between people.

I think that online dating, at its core, probably does “work.” But I think that math and robots will always return “safe” potential pairs and takes away the potential for the magic of human chemistry to create unique and sometimes non-sensical or non-typical pairings that are incredibly successful.

Is this okay? Of course it is. But I think that taking away the human component of match-making in preference of safe bets is a mistake. In the war of people vs robots and the automation of the entire world, romance should always be organized and curated by people.
