Face recognition dating
Psychologist Michal Kosinski and his colleague Yilun Wang at the Stanford Graduate School of Business caused a stir last month when they suggested that artificial intelligence could apply a sort of "gaydar" to profile photos on dating websites.
In a forthcoming paper in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, the two researchers revealed how existing facial recognition software could predict whether or not someone identifies as gay or straight just by studying their face.
You can pick your favorite celebrity or even upload a picture you know in real life. AI will then scan through several other dating apps such as Tinder, Match, Plenty of Fish and others to look for similar faces.
Facial recognition technology may catch a lot more in a photo than a winning smile or sparkling eyes.
Andrey Andreev, the CEO of Badoo, said: “We pride ourselves on listening to our millions of users around the world.
“We regularly hear that they love new, simple and fun ways to make better connections with a potential match.
People can even upload a picture of their own face to see others who look like them.
Also popular choices for people in Britain are Kate Moss, Davina Mc Call, Emilia Clarke, Naomi Campbell, Laura Whitmore and Jourdan Dunn.
