DNARomance introduces chemistry to online dating through DNA analysis ???


http://www.digitaljournal.com/pr/3494123

"Our app is designed to combine analysis of DNA profiles and Myers–Briggs personality types of our members to forecast a prospective relationships compatibility and possibilities for true love."
MBTI (Myers–Briggs personality types) is an OBSOLETE IPSATIVE TEST
Please do not mistake the OBSOLETE IPSATIVE TEST MBTI
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Myers%E2%80%93Briggs_Type_Indicator
with the NORMATIVE Cattell 16PF test
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/16PF_Questionnaire


The Swiss 16PT is NOT the same as the 16PF5 test

HOAX ALERT! Today: DNA Romance
http://onlinedatingsoundbarrier.blogspot.com.ar/2016/09/hoax-alert-dna-romance.html

Unless they can prove their method 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 the members of the site: It is a HOAX, a big FRAUD. 


"Mr Right or Ms Right" OR The one or your soulmate or the perfect match 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 "the one" or "your soulmate" or a "perfect match".
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.
http://onlinedatingsoundbarrier.blogspot.com.ar/2017/09/online-dating-pioneer-algorithmic.html
What is important in attracting people to one another may not be important in making couples happy. 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 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.

and remember also:
In the case of Yuliana Avalos and Melissa Midwest former 2014 big lawsuit againts Match Group, third-party scammers in Africa or wherever were creating fake profiles and catfishing with them.
IAC and Match Group were essentially aware of that situation and did nothing to stop it.
The USA Court ruled that IAC and Match Group were not responsible.
Attorney Evan Spencer, said that despite the fact that anti-scammer technology is available, Match Group failed to use such things as face-recognition software – which would have discovered that Yuliana Avalos's pictures were being used hundreds of times.
Yuliana Avalos has argued in a former 2014 big lawsuit against Match that photos of her were posted without her permission on the site as part of a scam that drove a man to commit suicide.

When I was interviewed last January 2011, 6 LONG YEARS AGO, by "Caras y Caretas" (summer in Argentina) I thought there were going to be a big scandal, because former CEO of Match LATAM Countries recognized 75% inactive profiles at Match Argentina, but nothing happened. Soon or later, all online dating sites should scan all photos used in each and every profile!

Personality, User Preferences and Behavior in Recommender systems

https://link.springer.com/article/10.1007/s10796-017-9800-0

We find that personality traits correlate significantly with behaviors and preferences such as newcomer retention, intensity of engagement, activity types, item categories, consumption versus contribution, and rating patterns.


Compare to "User Personality and User Satisfaction with Recommender Systems"
http://onlinedatingsoundbarrier.blogspot.com.ar/2017/09/user-personality-and-user-satisfaction.html

PAPER: Improved collaborative filtering recommendation algorithm of similarity measure
http://onlinedatingsoundbarrier.blogspot.com.ar/2017/05/paper-improved-collaborative-filtering.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)
 

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 notice, 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.
 


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.

Silly PAPER “Competing by Restricting Choice: The Case of Search Platforms”

Singlepreneur? If it was a silly virtual conference in the Online Dating Industry?
http://onlinedatingsoundbarrier.blogspot.com.ar/2017/09/singlepreneur-it-if-was-silly-virtual.html


What's Next For Internet Dating? INNOVATIONS OF COURSE!



Lack Of Innovation and 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 3 milestone discoveries of the 2001 - 2010 decade for Theories of Romantic Relationships Development are:

I) Several studies showing contraceptive pills users make different mate choices, on average, compared to non-users.
"Only short-term but not long-term partner preferences tend to vary with the menstrual cycle"

II) People often report partner preferences that are not compatible with their choices in real life. (Behavioural recommender systems or other system that learns your preferences are useless)

III) 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.


At the paper  "Perceptions of Ideal and Former Partners' Personality and Similarity
The authors had written
".... mismatches in personality are a frequently mentioned cause for relationship break-up. If former partners indeed have dissimilar personalities, our findings underline how difficult it is for many people to select a mate with a similar personality, or, alternatively, how little value individuals put on finding a similar partner in terms of personality.
The present study's results, as well as the results found in previous studies (e.g., Eastwick & Finkel, 2008), may be used to educate people, especially singles, about what really matters in long-term relationships, for instance, similarity in personality, instead of complementarity."


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"

BI article: A Stanford professor thinks AI will be able to detect your politics, IQ, and sexuality — but not everyone agrees






http://uk.businessinsider.com/stanford-professor-thinks-ai-will-soon-be-able-to-detect-your-politics-iq-sexuality-2017-9
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-4876230/Face-reading-AI-detect-political-beliefs-IQ.html
from the same author of

Finally the perfect dating algorithm? Of course NOT, Big Five test is OBSOLETE.
http://onlinedatingsoundbarrier.blogspot.com.ar/2017/02/finally-perfect-dating-algorithm-of.html

Images/photos used in the samples:
Persons with facial surgery? or even worse Photoshopped images?
People with facial surgery / Photoshopped (nose, lips, eyebrows) can introduce bias in the algorithm.

208 Facial images. We obtained facial images from public profiles posted on a U.S. dating
209 website. We recorded 130,741 images of 36,630 men and 170,360 images of 38,593 women
210 between the ages of 18 and 40, who reported their location as the U.S. Gay and heterosexual
211 people were represented in equal numbers. Their sexual orientation was established based on the
212 gender of the partners that they were looking for (according to their profiles).


"Gay and heterosexual people were represented in equal numbers. "

Perhaps it is a flaw. Gay people are OVERrepresented in the sample.
Perhaps Gay people should be less than 10% in the sample.

If in real world heterosexual people are 90% of any REAL / REPRESENTATIVE sample of any real population, and 10% are only Gay and Bisexual, it will be easy to any algorithm to achieve 90% precision detecting heterosexual people!
It only needs to say all of them are heterosexual people and it will fail for a 10%,  i.e. 90% precision !

"Their sexual orientation was established based on the gender of the partners that they were looking for (according to their profiles)."
Another flaw? How many heterosexual people can be bisexuals and they are not represented in the sample.
605 to the quality of the ground truth: it is possible that some of the users categorized as heterosexual
606 were, in fact, gay or bisexual (or vice versa). However, we believe that people voluntarily
607 seeking partners on the dating website have little incentive to misrepresent their sexual
608 orientation.

Please notice: 
Tinder is in big war with Badoo, and can not outperform it.
When Match Group (fka IAC Personals) bought OKCupid (6+ 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. 
Then Badoo backed Bumble to fight back and destroy Tinder (last December 2014).

Then Badoo backed Bumble to fight back and destroy Tinder (last December 2014).

TO BE MORE CLEAR, BUMBLE IS PUPPET FROM BADOO!

It's currently unclear if it was designed specifically with dating in mind
Facebook has built a new feature that’s drawing comparisons with dating apps, such as Tinder and Bumble.
The social network has started asking users if they’d like to meet up with certain friends.
If both of you respond positively, you’ll match and Facebook will encourage you to strike up a conversation on Messenger.
If either of you selects the No Thanks option, it will go no further.
