Online matchmakers and dating robots

Posted on: Wed 27 Jan 2021

The internet can be a great tool when you are in the dating field. A few clicks and you can be scrolling through a candidate’s social media page, then next thing you know, you’re googling ‘4wd’s’ and ‘how to fish’.

However, it can be much more than that, in fact, artificial intelligence can take your personal data and use it to find you the perfect match.

Virtual reality is also on the rise, and future AI could eventually create a fully-customised partner for you in virtual reality.

Tom Mann speaks with David Tuffley, Senior Lecturer in Applied Ethics & CyberSecurity at Griffith University about the use of artificial intelligence in online dating.
