Online Dating Industry 2012 State of the Art

WorldWide, there are over 5,000 -five thousand- online dating sites but no one is using the 16PF5 to assess personality of its members!

WorldWide, there are over 5,000 -five thousand- online dating sites but no one calculates similarity with a quantized pattern comparison method!

WorldWide, there are over 5,000 -five thousand- online dating sites but no one can show Compatibility Distribution Curves to each and every of its members!

WorldWide, there are over 5,000 -five thousand- online dating sites but no one is scientifically proven!

Actual online dating sites offering compatibility matching methods are only fueled by big marketing budgets and not by serious scientific evidence. No one ( eHarmony, Chemistry, PerfectMatch, PlentyOfFish Chemistry Predictor, MeeticAffinity, Be2, RewardingLove, Parship, True, etc) can prove its matching algorithm can match prospective partners who will have more stable and satisfying relationships 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. They are all like placebo, because
* Actual online dating sites offering compatibility matching methods, when calculating compatibility between prospective mates, have less or at least the same precision as searching on one's own. [in the range of 3 or 4 persons compatible per 1,000 persons screened]
* That is because they use:
a) simplified versions of personality traits, instead of the 16PF5 or similar with the complete inventory (16 variables)
b) inadequate quantitative methods to calculate compatibility between prospective mates, like eHarmony which uses Dyadic Adjustment Scale or other sites which use multivariate linear / logistic regression equations o other equations.

Although Mr. Verba, the new eHarmony's CEO had ordered eHarmony's Team (Carter, Gonzaga, Lee) to stop playing the guitar at eHarmony's Labs and began working in a completely new matching algorithm using a copycat of the 16PF5 to assess personality, instead of the Big5. They plan to launch in few weeks because eHarmony had stayed 11 years in the Online Dating Industry without innovating, saying "scientifically proven" and eHarmony does not have any proof; with a low success rate and high level of false positives, scamming members with automatic rebilling and other credit cards trickery.
Moreover I had sent several emails to alert them (since May 2011) Match's Team is secretely testing a new compatibility matching algorithm using the 16PF5 test, to replace Chemistry, a 6+ years old and obsolete site.
I will be posting screenshots and insightful comments soon, comparing both proposals.
I had also challenged both eHarmony and Match to offer Compatibility Distribution Curves for each and every dater, i.e. how compatible you are with the rest of the daters.
Both eHarmony and Match will need to acquire a Cray, Fujitsu or Hitachi supercomputer OR over a 1,000 high speed servers arrangement due to the high volume of floating point operations you need to calculate similarity between quantized patterns using the 16PF5 test. (In this case compatibility is equal to similarity)

In the "first run" you not only need to calculate similarity between each and every women compared to men, but also men to men similarity to avoid women seeing men as all the same, and women to women similarity to avoid men seeing women as all the same.

I had reviewed over 55 compatibility matching engines intended for serious dating since 2003, when I had discovered "the online dating sound barrier" problem.

Breaking “the online dating sound barrier” is to achieve at least:
3 most compatible persons in a 100,000 persons database.
12 most compatible persons in a 1,000,000 persons database.
48 most compatible persons in a 10,000,000 persons database.
100 times better than Compatibility Matching Algorithms used by actual online dating sites!

The only way to achieve that is:
- using the 16PF5 normative personality test, available in different languages to assess personality of members, or a proprietary test with exactly the same traits of the 16PF5.
The ensemble of the 16PF5 is: 10E16, big number as All World Population is nearly 6.7 * 10E9
- expressing compatibility with eight decimals, like The pattern is 92.55033557% +/- 0.00000001% similar to the pattern
Using a quantized pattern comparison method (part of pattern recognition by cross-correlation) to calculate similarity between prospective mates.

That is the only way to revolutionize the Online Dating Industry.

All other proposals are .............. NOISE
