REFINERY29 - The dating world is witnessing the growing influence of artificial intelligence (AI), with apps incorporating AI to enhance matchmaking. Apps like Iris Dating and Elate utilize AI to offer a more personalized dating experience. Iris uses AI to show users profiles of individuals they are highly compatible with, aiming to reduce swipe fatigue. Elate introduces Dara, an AI-powered dating coach providing users with advice on opening lines, profile enhancements, and date ideas. However, concerns exist regarding potential biases in AI algorithms and the risk of replacing human interaction with AI-generated responses. Biases can be introduced during the selection and training of AI models. Yet, AI offers broader access to resources like dating coaches, benefiting individuals without extensive financial means. While the future implications of AI in dating are yet to be fully understood, there is optimism that it can enhance connections and relationships.
