about article "Wake-up Call, eHarmony Sold For A Song"

eHarmony's CEO Discusses Artifical Intelligence ?
http://onlinedatingsoundbarrier.blogspot.com/2018/10/eharmonys-ceo-discusses-artifical.html
It is all a HOAX, a FRAUD.

He mistakes Artifical Intelligence with a Behavioural Recommender System!


eHarmony should be closed forever for fraud!
The success rate of eHarmony is less than 10%.
eHarmony is ONLY a 18+  years old obsolete site and a HOAX, based on a big scientific fraud, only sustained by big marketing budget.
The Big Five normative test used by eHarmony, had been proven/revealed as an incomplete and incorrect model to assess/measure personality of persons.
It is a HOAX, a FRAUD to use the Big Five normative test in year 2018. 
  eHarmony was copycatted in several countries like
the online dating sites EliteSingles / SilverSingles in Canada, Australia, USA, UK, Chile, Mexico; eDarling in Spain, German, France, Russia;
also TeAmo in Russia is another copycat of eHarmony;
esync (eSynchrony) in Singapore,
MiMediaManzana in Colombia, Peru, Mexico, Chile, etc.,
Marrily in India
and
LemonSwan in Germany and other countries. 

The key to long-lasting romance; COMPATIBILITY is: STRICT PERSONALITY SIMILARITY and not "meet other people with similar interests".
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.


Very easy to copycat eHarmony, but very difficult to innovate: a 100 times better algorithm than eHarmony.

PAPER: RecSys Challenge 2018: playlist continuation based on


shared neighborhood-methods, matrix factorization and audio-feature classification
https://asciico.de/assets/archive/papers/blauensteiner-metz-advanced-data-challenge-report.pdf

Please see also "about 12th ACM Conference on Recommender Systems"
https://onlinedatingsoundbarrier.blogspot.com/2018/10/about-12th-acm-conference-on.html


and notice 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/2017/01/paper-comparative-study-of-people-to_14.html  

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

In case you did not see, 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. 

The key to long-lasting romance: COMPATIBILITY is exactly STRICT PERSONALITY SIMILARITY and not "meet other people with similar interests or political views".  

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.

 
WorldWide, there are over 5,000 (five thousand) online dating sites:

- but no one is using the 16PF5 (or similar) to assess personality of its members!

- but no one calculates similarity with a quantized pattern comparison method!

- but no one can show Compatibility Distribution Curves to each and every of its members!!! i.e. if you are a man seeking women, to show how compatible you are with a 20,000,000 women database, and to select a bunch of 100 women from 20,000,000 women database.

- but no one is scientifically proven!  No actual online dating site  is "scientifically proven" because no one can prove its matching algorithm 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 its members.

SA article about MTCH continues to fire on all cylinders???

MTCH is mostly owned by IAC.
IAC is controlled by one man, Mr. Barry Diller.

For me it is clear they do not want to innovate.
They want to squeeze their big databases to get all the juice (money) from the wallets of the daters.

- but no one calculates similarity with a quantized pattern comparison method!

- but no one can show Compatibility Distribution Curves to each and every of its members!!! i.e. if you are a man seeking women, to show how compatible you are with a 20,000,000 women database, and to select a bunch of 100 women from 20,000,000 women database.

- but no one is scientifically proven!  No actual online dating site  is "scientifically proven" because no one can prove its matching algorithm 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 its members.

A (false) STORY behind TINDER - VisualPolitik EN

When Match Group (fka IAC Personals) bought OKCupid (several years ago) for an astronomical amount of money, the OKCupid team had the task to copycat Badoo, but they failed in that mission.
IAC / Match Group "acquired" HatchLabs to "develop" Tinder copycat of Badoo in 2012.

Then in 2014, Badoo backed Bumble, to fight back Tinder. Perhaps only as revenge against Match Group! No more than that.

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.

 
WorldWide, there are over 5,000 (five thousand) online dating sites:

- but no one is using the 16PF5 (or similar) to assess personality of its members!

- but no one calculates similarity with a quantized pattern comparison method!

- but no one can show Compatibility Distribution Curves to each and every of its members!!! i.e. if you are a man seeking women, to show how compatible you are with a 20,000,000 women database, and to select a bunch of 100 women from 20,000,000 women database.

- but no one is scientifically proven!  No actual online dating site  is "scientifically proven" because no one can prove its matching algorithm 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 its members.

some NEW online dating papers



Are Tinder and Dating Apps Changing Dating and Mating in the USA?
https://link.springer.com/chapter/10.1007/978-3-319-95540-7_6

Facial and self‐report questionnaire measures capture different aspects of romantic partner preferences
https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/abs/10.1111/bjop.12347

Online Dating: Changing Intimacy One Swipe at a Time?
https://link.springer.com/chapter/10.1007/978-3-319-95540-7_4


The Online Dating Industry needs INNOVATIONS, not more bells and whistles.
What is important in attracting people to one another may not be important in making couples happy.
Compatibility is all about a high level on personality similarity between prospective mates for long term mating with commitment, and not meet other people with similar interests or political views.
