Hinge: A two old months interview where the CEO explains he can not beat Tinder and will waste over USD 20 Million
http://onlinedatingsoundbarrier.blogspot.com.ar/2017/04/hinge-two-old-months-interview-where.html

Tinder, Match, Meetic, Ourtime, PlentyOfFish, MeetMe (MEET), Hinge, Happn, CoffeeMeetsBagel, OKCupid, Bumble, Zoosk, Badoo and many more: in a WAR between themselves, no one will win!


Social dating is vaporware.


Online Dating for serious daters does not need to be more social, it needs to be more effective/efficient. 
It needs to reduce the false positives problem and big data dating IS NOT the key to long-lasting romance.
The key to long-lasting romance is STRICT PERSONALITY SIMILARITY and not "meet other people with similar interests".

When eHarmony was launched in August year 2000, the Big Five normative personality test
was revealed as incorrect and incomplete model of personality!!!
Please see: THE HEXACO PERSONALITY INVENTORY - REVISED / A MEASURE OF THE SIX MAJOR DIMENSIONS OF PERSONALITY
http://hexaco.org/history

The Big Five normative personality test used by eHarmony and copycats like eDarling or EliteSingles had been revealed as incorrect and incomplete model of personality SINCE YEAR 2000!!!  17 long years ago!
Now it is obsolete and a fraud to use the Big Five normative personality test!


Please see also: 
eHarmony was copycatted in several countries like 
the online dating sites EliteSingles in Canada, Australia, USA, UK, Chile, Mexico; eDarling in Spain, German, France, Russia;

Another FRAUD from the Germans: today ... LemonSwan









LemonSwan-Prinzip == home grown Big Five normative personality test.


Unless they can prove their method can match prospective partners who will have more stable and satisfying relationships (and very low divorce rates) than couples matched by chance, astrological destiny, personal preferences, searching on one's own, or other technique as the control group in a peer reviewed Scientific Paper for the majority (over 90%) of the members of the site: It is a HOAX, a big FRAUD. 


Unfortunately the Big Five normative personality test is obsolete, it has been proven as an incomplete and incorrect model of personality.

The Big Five (Big5, OCEAN, Five Factor Model) normative personality test is the biggest mistake Psychologists made since several years ago.
The Big Five is also known as the Five Factor Model theory of personality traits, a psychological model based on research by Paul Costa and Robert McCrae.

-----------------------
 
Lack Of Innovation and Decadence can summarize the Online Dating Industry.
C-Level executives are more worried about their golf scores than their company’s long term strategy and innovations.
C-level executives are cooking barbecues under the water (selling smoke) and not paying attention to latest research from Academics which could be beneficial for the Online Dating Industry.

The Online Dating Industry does not need a 10% improvement, a 50% improvement or a 100% improvement. It does need "a 100 times better improvement"

PAPER: A Personality-Based Recommender System for Semantic Searches



https://link.springer.com/chapter/10.1007/978-3-319-59650-1_51
 in Vehicles Sales Portals

from
12th International Conference, HAIS 2017, La Rioja, Spain, June 21-23, 2017

HAIS 2017: Hybrid Artificial Intelligent Systems pp 600-612
Unfortunately the Big Five normative personality test is obsolete, it has been proven as an incomplete and incorrect model of personality. 
The HEXACO (a.k.a. Big Six) is another oversimplification.  

http://onlinedatingsoundbarrier.blogspot.com.ar/2017/03/paper-game-based-extraction-of-web.html

Personality Based Recommender Systems are the next generation of recommender systems because they perform far better than Behavioural ones (past actions and pattern of personal preferences)

That is the only way to improve recommender systems, to include the personality traits of their users.
http://onlinedatingsoundbarrier.blogspot.com.ar/2017/06/paper-item-silk-road-recommending-items.html 

They need to calculate personality similarity between users but there are different formulas to calculate similarity.

In case you did not notice, recommender systems are morphing to compatibility matching engines, as the same used in the Online Dating Industry for years, with low success rates until now because they mostly use the Big Five model to assess personality and the Pearson correlation coefficient to calculate similarity.
Please remember: Personality traits are highly stable in persons over 25 years old to 45 years old. 

Which is the RIGHT approach to innovate in the Personality Based Recommender Systems Arena?
 
The same approach to innovate in the Online Dating Industry == 16PF5 test or similar to assess personality traits and a new method to calculate similarity between quantized patterns.
Online Dating sites have very big databases, in the range of 20,000,000 (twenty million) profiles, so the Big Five model or the HEXACO model are not enough for predictive purposes. That is why I suggest the 16PF5 test instead and another method to calculate similarity.

High precision in matching algorithms is precisely the key to open the door and leave the infancy of compatibility testing.
Without offering the NORMATIVE 16PF5 (or similar test measuring exactly the 16 personality factors) for serious dating, it will be impossible to innovate and revolutionize the Online Dating Industry.


The Online Dating Industry does not need a 10% improvement, a 50% improvement or a 100% improvement. It does need "a 100 times better improvement"

All other proposals are NOISE and perform as placebo!!!

FORBES article: Finally, The Perfect App For Superfans, Stalkers, And Serial Killers




https://www.forbes.com/sites/janetwburns/2017/06/23/finally-the-perfect-dating-app-for-superfans-stalkers-and-serial-killers


Dating.ai lets users scour big dating sites for particular faces in the crowd.
For generations, technology has been driving the way we date; with both innovation and relationships, however, it is vitally important to realize when it's time to hit the brakes.

Case in point: Dating.ai, a new app which uses neural network-based facial recognition AI to scour dating platforms for profiles that match a user's specified 'type'--or even belong to a specific person.

But ... The person you are looking for does not exist or if it exist, he/she does not want to meet you because your are not compatible.
