It's an automation bot for Tinder. It builds an average face out of a set of liked/disliked faces, then makes choices about newly provided Tinder profiles based on eigenfaces made using the average face. After that point, it's a chatbot: it carries on conversations with the users behind matching profiles, continuing the conversation if it gets positive responses.
But does it work? That is, does it accomplish the same goal as having a human operator? According to its creator:
What do girls think of the bot? I've gone on at least 10 dates with the help of the bot and I've shown my partners the bot in its entirety. One date literally didn't believe me and thought I was pulling her leg. Another person thought it was really cool and wanted the full tour. All were in agreement that it is not creepy, though some felt it was borderline. Kind of nice considering it's not something you'd come across everyday.The obvious question here is how well it works for other people.
