Using deep learning to find attractive profiles on an online dating site.
 
Can deep learning help you find the perfect women?

The time that you were predetermined to marry one of the 50 girls/boys of your town is over. New technologies will continue to change the way how we find our romantic partners. Although randomness sometimes determines love, we should embrace the great opportunities in machine learning to help anyone looking for a soulmate!

can a computer learn to which girls I'm attracted? I have tried by labeling over 9K profile pictures on Tinder and using deep learning, the latest revolution in artificial intelligence. In this blog post, I will provide a high-level view how I used these techniques to predict my Tinder swipes. You can find the technical details in this paper, which was accepted for the ICML deep learning workshop.
Can deep learning help you find the perfect girl? One of the first things I did when I moved to Montreal was installing Tinder. For those of you not familiar with the online meat market, Tinder is a dating app showing nearby users you can like or dislike by their profile pictures.

That seems kind of silly given that IP addresses rarely are very precise.

I still remember years ago where we lived, our IP pointed to a place about 15 to 20 minutes down the highway as a best geo-guess, so it was only accurate enough to aim cruise missiles lol.

A Chinese company decrees that women employees must get pregnant as per the laid-down schedule and those who fail to follow the plan will face a one-time fine of 1000 yuan and will not be considered for promotion.
