I agree with Mr. Strahlberg when he says:
"5. What are the biggest challenges currently facing dating sites?
Innovation is something that is lacking in the industry. ................"
Many C-Level executives from Online Dating Companies are more worried about their golf scores than
their company’s long term strategy and innovations. They can cook a
barbecue under the water, they are smoke sellers, but they are not going
to innovate in nothing. They do not pay attention to latest research
from Academics which could be beneficial for the Online Dating Industry.
The key to long-lasting romance is STRICT PERSONALITY SIMILARITY.
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!
but no one is scientifically proven!
The only way to revolutionize the Online Dating Industry
is using the 16PF5 normative personality test, available in different
languages to assess personality of members, or a proprietary test with
exactly the same traits of the 16PF5 and expressing compatibility with eight decimals (needs a quantized pattern comparison method, part of pattern
recognition by cross-correlation, to calculate similarity between
High precision in matching algorithms is precisely the key to open the door and leave the infancy of compatibility testing.
It is all about achieving the eighth decimal!
With 8 decimals, you have more precision than any person could achieve by searching on one's own, but the only way to achieve the eighth decimal is using analysis and correlation with quantized patterns.
Without offering the NORMATIVE16PF5 (or similar test measuring exactly
the 16 personality factors) for serious dating, it will be impossible to
innovate and revolutionize the Online Dating Industry
All other proposals are NOISE and perform as placebo.
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", not 100% better, 100X better
The Online Dating Industry needs a very powerful algorithm like the "Teller Ulam design". In this case 100 times more powerful than actual matching algorithms.
