about article: Getting Cozy with Hicky.io, the Online Dating Solution on the Blockchain



https://themerkle.com/getting-cozy-with-hicky-io-the-online-dating-solution-on-the-blockchain/


Other proposals like the one from Snap Interactive, Viola.AI, MatchPool, LUNA and others are using blockchain technology.

Where is exactly the innovation with Hicky?

The Online Dating Industry needs INNOVATIONS, not more bells and whistles.
Personality Based Recommender Systems are the next generation of recommender systems because they perform far better than Behavioural ones (past actions and pattern of personal preferences) or other system that learns your preferences (READ machine learning)
Also do not mistake "artificial intelligence" with a behavioural recommender system.
Please do not call AI to any silly recommender system that learns your preference.

Remembering "Operation Match"
http://onlinedatingsoundbarrier.blogspot.com.ar/2018/02/remembering-operation-match.html


Lack Of Innovation & Decadence can summarize the Online Dating Industry.
C-Level executives are more worried about their golf scores than their company’s long term strategy and innovations.
C-level executives are cooking barbecues under the water (selling smoke) and not paying attention to latest research from Academics which could be beneficial for the Online Dating Industry.


High precision in matching algorithms is precisely the key to open the door and leave the infancy of compatibility testing.
Without offering the NORMATIVE 16PF5 (or similar test measuring exactly the 16 personality factors) for serious dating, it will be impossible to innovate and revolutionize the Online Dating Industry.

Remembering "Operation Match"



http://www.thecrimson.com/article/2018/2/16/operation-match/

 Operation Match 1966 USA.
http://onlinedatingsoundbarrier.blogspot.com.ar/2017/01/how-ai-can-help-you-find-date.html


50+ Years later, all Scientific Research shows: The key to long-lasting romance: COMPATIBILITY is STRICT PERSONALITY SIMILARITY and not "meet other people with similar interests". 
 

At the paper  "Perceptions of Ideal and Former Partners' Personality and Similarity
The authors had written
".... mismatches in personality are a frequently mentioned cause for relationship break-up. If former partners indeed have dissimilar personalities, our findings underline how difficult it is for many people to select a mate with a similar personality, or, alternatively, how little value individuals put on finding a similar partner in terms of personality.
The present study's results, as well as the results found in previous studies (e.g., Eastwick & Finkel, 2008), may be used to educate people, especially singles, about what really matters in long-term relationships, for instance, similarity in personality, instead of complementarity."
  

 

Online Dating sites have very big databases, in the range of 20,000,000 (twenty million) profiles, so the Big Five model or the HEXACO model are not enough for predictive purposes. That is why I suggest the 16PF5 test instead and another method to calculate similarity.  


Breaking "the online dating sound barrier" is to achieve at least:
3 most compatible persons in a 100,000 persons database.
12 most compatible persons in a 1,000,000 persons database.
48 most compatible persons in a 10,000,000 persons database.
100 times better than Compatibility Matching Algorithms used by actual online dating sites!

High precision in matching algorithms is precisely the key to open the door and leave the infancy of compatibility testing.
Without offering the NORMATIVE 16PF5 (or similar test measuring exactly the 16 personality factors) for serious dating, it will be impossible to innovate and revolutionize the Online Dating Industry.

TechCrunch article: Facebook should actually be Tinder too

Facebook wants to copycat WATSON IBM, a Personality Based Recommender System.

about Chief Scientist At eHarmony Cavorts With The ... Facebook
http://onlinedatingsoundbarrier.blogspot.com.ar/2018/01/about-chief-scientist-at-eharmony.html
My bet: He is copycatting WATSON IBM, in same manner as Dr. Galen Buckwalter did, but using HEXACO model of personality (BIG FIVE, or OCEAN is obsolete now)

eHarmony and other dating sites are collaborating with big AI players like IBM Watson ???

For me it is clear they do not want to innovate.
They want to squeeze their big databases to get all the juice (money) from the wallets of the daters.
