Recent developments in artificial intelligence, such as OpenAI’s ChatGPT, are making waves in the online dating world.
NBC’s Gadi Schwartz recently tried the software and examined its potential as an effective wingman.
Dating can be tough, and navigating dating apps can be even more challenging.
However, what happens when you use ChatGPT to land that first date?
Anthony Ria, a 29-year-old software engineer, created an AI model to talk to matches on Tinder and asked ChatGPT for some pickup lines.
He shared some of the responses in a YouTube video, including questions like, “If you could be any animal, what would you be?” and “Why do you think it’s important to have a sense of humor?” Anthony says that it worked, and the AI model was able to talk to 70 matches.
Even one of the conversations led to a woman asking him out, which he found to be quite remarkable.
On Valentine’s Day, The New York Times used ChatGPT to create a Valentine’s Day generator, which was an interesting experiment.
However, not everyone is convinced that this technology will have a significant impact on dating.
Helen Fisher, a biological anthropologist and chief science advisor to the dating site match.com, doesn’t think that using bots to help with initial conversations is a big deal.
According to her, it’s just a tool that people can use, but they’ll eventually meet in person, and their true selves will be revealed.
A recent OkCupid survey found that roughly seven in ten users feel that using AI to message people or create a profile is dishonest.
So, it remains to be seen whether AI will play a significant role in fostering relationships in the not-too-distant future.
Nonetheless, for now, it appears that ChatGPT can pretend to be human, and the question is, what’s next? Stay tuned for more updates.
