This AI Chatbot Promises to Help You Date Better by Preventing Ghosting and Warding off "Catfishing and Creeps”
AI-powered chatbots are dominating almost every field...even our dating life. Are they threatening or helpful? Only time will tell. For now, in a world where dating is supposed to be more convenient but just gets harder, a new dating app uses Artificial Intelligence to reduce "ghosting" by handling the initial meet-and-greet part of the dating process. It basically acts as a chatbot that mimics users' interests and personalities, according to Teaser AI whose app is slated to hit Apple's App Store soon. Rather than engaging in a direct conversation with a prospect, users can first interact with a chatbot that "gives you a feel" for your match before speaking to them.
The description explains that the device helps cut short the small talk with a potential date and helps us decide whether we want to meet up with the person. Its goal is to make you "meet up in person and see whether that spark is for real. Less talk, more action." The app was devised because "dating apps today have endless small talk," but "we don't want a pen pal," the company claims. "When you start Teaser AI, our AI starts learning about you—through your profile and chats, it gets smarter every time," the description reads, reminding users that the AI is "of course not perfect." That sounds helpful yet scary. This AI technology claims to combat ghosting (the practice of completely cutting a partner off without reason, explanation, or further contact). "And if you don't say something within 24 hours of a match, consider it expired—so get going," the App Store listing says. By verifying every profile, it promises "to ward off catfishing and creeps."
The same team behind the creation of Dispo, the photo-sharing app co-founded by YouTube sensation David Dobrik that gives pictures the feel of a disposable camera has come up with Teaser AI. Upon its launch, it will be available to iPhone users for free. The 'Godfather of AI' Dr. Geoffrey Hintonv indicated that AI might turn into a more urgent risk than climate change itself, reports the New York Post. AI has entered our workplace, the church and our gyms (per New York Post). It is now trying to enter our hearts through dating apps. AI in the gym claims to unlock "the fountain of youth" with apps like FitnessAI that generate personalized workouts. AI-powered machines are capable of outperforming human trainers with 20-minute sessions backed by extensive performance data that produces "maximal strength training results," according to Exercise Coach CEO Brian Cygan. Additionally, a study published in the journal Nature Medicine disclosed that Artificial Intelligence might be able to predict if someone can be diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in advance. It is also now capable of mimicking our voices and creating all kinds of art and imagery. Phew! Well, it's time to either feel the threat of being replaced by AI or to find love...with AI.
