Can AI Help Us Find Love? With Rori Sassoon & Ryan Matzner
Can we use AI to help us find love? And at what point does this become creepy? We're always talking about trust and transparency related to AI, but what about trust and transparency with humans and dating? In this episode of thinkPod, we are joined by Rori Sassoon (co-founder of Platinum Poire and author of The Art of the Date) and Ryan Matzner (founder of Fueled). We discuss and debate whether AI is an effective and efficient matchmaker, how AI may be able to know us better than we do, the amount of data a dating platform needs, and the prospect of using visual recognition technology to find a match that looks like your favorite celebrity.
