BBC - Feb 22 - Life-changing things have happened to millions of people thanks to that simple swipe-yes-swipe-no interface. Tinder is now a serious technology company, and by far the most popular dating app worldwide. Mr Rad is the chairman of both Tinder and Swipe Ventures, the arm of the company designed to buy other dating-related technologies. One of which is artificial intelligence. "AI will definitely impact dating," Mr Rad said, noting Tinder is popular for so many people because it allows us to show interest in a person without the fear of rejection. "You can imagine how, with augmented reality, that experience could happen in the room, in real time. The impact is profound as these devices get closer to your senses, to your eyes, to your experiences."
