It says: "Match desarrolló un algoritmo de coincidencia que aprende constantemente y funciona como un cerebro humano. Si deja de gustarles algo, lo discontinúa. Se trata de aprender sobre la marcha, como lo hacen otras plataformas tecnológicas como Netflix y Facebook", explica Stescobich.
"Match developed a matching algorithm that continuously learns and works like an human brain. If you stop to like something, it is discontinued. It is like learning on the fly, like other technology platforms like Netflix and Facebook," says Stescobich.
That is Synapse. It is really funny how those "important persons / math geniuses" from big Online Dating Sites can waste precious time with Behavioural Recommender Systems, improving them, "refining" those Behavioural Matching Algorithms, which are all rubbish.
IAC Personals' Latin American operations are estimated to be coins!
Match LATAM claims 2 million of (Argentinean ?) users; last January 2011, Mr. Gandelman, former LATAM CEO said 4 million of registered profiles, but only 1 million active.
Remember also what I had said last January 2011:
"You can fastly search for the person you want, but most probably that person does not exist or does not want to meet you because you are not compatible with him/her. Online dating needs innovations, but the innovations will come from Latest Research in Theories of Romantic Relationships Development with commitment: high precision personality similarity"
Behavioural recommender systems or other system that learns your preferences are useless for serious online dating.
