New Silly Patent for eHarmony: SOCIAL MATCHING

Matchmakers Emerge as an Antidote to the Agony of Online Dating ???
https://onlinedatingsoundbarrier.blogspot.com/2019/03/matchmakers-emerge-as-antidote-to-agony.html


eHarmony is ONLY a 19+++  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 2019. 

The Online Dating Industry is selling elixirs, tonics, snake oil liniments and other patent medicine and performing like the Pharmaceutical and Cosmetic Industry before the USA Food and Drug Administration was created where any player can make any claim without any credentials.

Mi Media Manzana, the Peruvian dating app, ceases operations


https://www.contxto.com/en/peru/mi-media-manzana-the-peruvian-dating-app-ceases-operations/


The Peruvian startup turned the lights off and exited countries where it was operating including Mexico, Colombia, Chile, and Peru. After six years of operations, the company will be formally over on June 20.
“We were looking to increase the retention rate to increase the volume of active users,” said (the CEO). “Freemium models work thanks to the percentage of paying active users. In order to be successful, though, we needed at least 2 percent of active users to actually switch over to the paid version, but we were in the 0.5 to 1 percent range.”

Gale-Shapley marriage problem is a HOAX. It does not take into account personality similarity between prospective mates.
Also a marriage can be stable, but miserable. 
Gale-Shapley marriage problem does not take into account marital satisfaction.
Gale-Shapley marriage problem proposes stable marriage as an economic function (as a complex mental process).
They propose: a stable marriage can be predicted using mainly Gale_Shapley algorithm, General Equilibrium Theory and Non_cooperative Game Theory.
The Gale-Shapley algorithm is not good enough to solve the stable marriage problem because it is based on initial preferences (attraction, fantasies, infatuation) and does not take into account temporal patterns of relationship variables.

https://onlinedatingsoundbarrier.blogspot.com/2015/08/article-tinder-and-dawn-of-dating.html

"Mr Right or Ms Right" or "the one" or "your soulmate" or a "perfectmatch" does not exist! It will only exist a pool of compatible persons, not more than that.
No online dating site can promise you to find you "Mr Right or Ms Right"  or "the one" or "your soulmate" or a "perfectmatch".
Moreover 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.


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

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 16PF6 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 16PF6 (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 16PF6 (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.

Tinder the most iconic, innovative brand for Gen Z.
For example, a nineteen year old spends five hours a day on social media and on their computers. To them, that is real life.

“Top 45 Top Scientific Papers For The Online Dating Industry”
http://onlinedatingsoundbarrier.blogspot.com.ar/2012/02/top-45-scientific-papers-for-online.html

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".  

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 16PF6 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 16PF6 (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 16PF6 (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.

The Online Dating Industry Loves Artificial Intelligence




https://syncedreview.com/2019/06/15/the-online-dating-industry-loves-artificial-intelligence/
Instead of having users simply swipe through headshots, many new dating apps and online platforms are leveraging artificial intelligence to introduce a variety of novel approaches to smart matchmaking.


They had the bad habit to call / to mistake AI to any silly recommender system that learns your preference.
DO NOT mistake "artificial intelligence" with any simple behavioural recommender system.

NEW PAPER: Detecting Persuasive Arguments based on Author-ReaderPersonality Traits and their Interaction.





http://delivery.acm.org/10.1145/3330000/3320467/p211-shmueli-scheuer.pdf?ip=186.143.135.215&id=3320467&acc=OPEN&key=4D4702B0C3E38B35%2E4D4702B0C3E38B35%2E4D4702B0C3E38B35%2E6D218144511F3437&__acm__=1560641687_28a9342a4074ea478363400b9588721e



PAPER: Measuring the Impact of Online Personalisation: Past, Present and Future
http://onlinedatingsoundbarrier.blogspot.com/2019/06/paper-measuring-impact-of-online.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)
https://onlinedatingsoundbarrier.blogspot.com/2019/05/paper-beyond-personalization-research.html
 

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 understand: 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 == 16PF6 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 16PF6 test instead and another method to calculate similarity.

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!

High precision in matching algorithms is precisely the key to open the door and leave the infancy of compatibility testing.


Without offering the NORMATIVE 16PF6 (or similar test measuring exactly the 16 personality factors) for serious dating, it will be impossible to innovate and revolutionize the Online Dating Industry.
