Tinder boss predicts that in five years, Artificial Intelligence will be able to find your match.
The dating app Tinder as currently been swiping right with popularity as reportedly 25 million people are members since the conception of the app, as reported per 2016.
The app has notably been known as a punchline, as it gained a reputation for being an outlet for ‘casual relationships.’ However it has become so much more, as many people have reportedly married their tinder matches.
To take this one step further, according to a report by the BBC, Tinder founder Sean Rad claims that the company is looking into incorporating Siri into the match making mix.
“I think this might sound crazy,” Rad told attendees at Start-Up Grind. “In five years time, Tinder might be so good, you might be like 'Hey Siri, what’s happening tonight? And Tinder might pop up and say There’s someone down the street you might be attracted to. She’s also attracted to you. She’s free tomorrow night. We know you both like the same band, and it’s playing – would you like us to buy you tickets?’… and you have a match.”
“It’s a little scary.”
Forget about AI taking over the world, it seems like in five years time, AI will actually become your wingman or wingwoman.
