Can an algorithm used to pair medical school students with residency programs find you your soul mate? Or, at least, get you out of the house and on a date?
If you use dating app, you’ll be finding out.
The app’s new feature, called Most Compatible, rolls out Wednesday on iOS. Every 24 hours, it serves up a suggestion for someone who is your best match. In a statement, Hinge said early market tests showed people were 8 times more likely to go on a date with their Most Compatible match than a regular match.
In order to make these matches,is using the Gale Shapley algorithm– an algorithm that’s been applied to various situations like matching med students and residency programs.
Hinge lets you like or comment on people’s profiles as a way of making a connection. There’s no swiping involved. Most Compatible takes all that data into consideration.
The feature will be available to Android users July 17.
