Dating.ai lets users scour big dating sites for particular faces in the crowd.
For generations, technology has been driving the way we date; with both innovation and relationships, however, it is vitally important to realize when it's time to hit the brakes.

Case in point: Dating.ai, a new app which uses neural network-based facial recognition AI to scour dating platforms for profiles that match a user's specified 'type'--or even belong to a specific person.

But ... 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.

Why Tinder DOESN'T work for Long Term Mating:

Study says evaluating someone based on their physical attractiveness alone is 'pointless'



http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-4630964/Study-says-evaluating-based-looks-pointless.html

  •     Suggests daters need to keep in mind that perception changes when they meet
  •     Those deemed very good looking in their pics were not found to increase ratings
  •     Study said this is the 'ceiling  effect' and they cannot get much better
  •     The middle has room to grow and their personality increased attractiveness
Social dating is vaporware.

Tinder is like an out of control machine gun shooting flowers (good for nothing, useless).
http://onlinedatingsoundbarrier.blogspot.com.ar/2016/08/out-of-control-machine-gun-shooting.html
 


Online Dating for serious daters does not need to be more social, it needs to be more effective/efficient.
It needs to reduce the false positives problem and big data dating IS NOT the key to long-lasting romance.
The key to long-lasting romance is STRICT PERSONALITY SIMILARITY and not "meet other people with similar interests".

https://techcrunch.com/2017/06/21/chinas-tantan-raises-70-million/


Other article says: "Tantan now claimes 90 million registered users. Excluding the fake and banned accounts, the number of valid users boils down to 60 million, roughly the size of the population of Italy. Among them, “post-90s” account for more than 75%. The DAUs reached 6 million and the second-day return rate is around 75%. Users have made over 3 billion matches in total, the firm disclosed."

Match is adding video features in dating profiles.


http://mashable.com/2017/06/21/match-stories-video-dating-profile/

Badoo is in war with Zoosk and Badoo backed Bumble to fight and destroy Tinder.
Tinder is in big war with Badoo, and can not outperform it.
The mission of Tinder was to kill Badoo, but it seems Tinder is killing Match.
It seems there is an internal war between Tinder and Match App.
If Tinder is cannibalizing Match and Match Group now wants to promote more Match App and not much Tinder because Tinder is not monetizing as expected?

-----------------------------------------------------------

Lack Of Innovation & Decadence can summarize the Online Dating Industry.
C-Level executives are more worried about their golf scores than their company’s long term strategy and innovations.
C-level executives are cooking barbecues under the water (selling smoke) and not paying attention to latest research from Academics which could be beneficial for 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"

Chinese Tinder-like Tantan soon to monetize after raising USD 70 Million Series



http://technode.com/2017/06/21/chinese-tinder-like-tantan-soon-to-monetize-after-raising-usd70m-series-d/

Tantan, the country’s top dating app, announced today that it has raised a USD 70 Million worth in a Series D, raising the startup’s total fund raised to USD 120 Million.
The app chooses to monetize through membership. .... Tantan will explore artificial intelligence technology and expand to new markets in the future in an attempt to enable more accurate and personalized social experience.
Tantan now claimes 90 million registered users. Excluding the fake and banned accounts, the number of valid users boils down to 60 million, roughly the size of the population of Italy. Among them, “post-90s” account for more than 75%. The DAUs reached 6 million and the second-day return rate is around 75%. Users have made over 3 billion matches in total, the firm disclosed.


3 billion matches in total == that is the same to say out of control machine gun shooting flowers (good for nothing, useless).
