Face recognition dating
(wouldn’t specify every site its app references.)The result is slightly terrifying, kind of fun, and most of all a very cynical approach to helping people find romantic partners.However, the dating apps that depends on for its search results are not so amused, and say the app is violating their terms.Ahrens and his business partner would only say that they are looking forward to working with the dating apps; Tinder, Match, and Plenty of Fish tell a different story.For now, the app is still up in the app store and still pulling Tinder profiles. “When you have a bunch of single guys in the office, it goes in that direction,” he said.“You wanna try your own dog food.”Currently, you can limit your search on for men or women, but you can’t search by sexual preference (“men looking for men,” for example).
“Priceline and Expedia freaked out airlines at first,” Ahrens said. When they did 'name your own price,' our users are doing 'name your own face.'”Right now, the future of seems unclear.The idea for the app, which has about 15,000 users, came when Ahrens and his team were looking for ways to use the facial recognition software they had developed.After they read about another app that used Tinder’s API, they got the idea to use their technology on dating apps.Of course there’s a bigger issue here: the privacy of the dating app users whose profiles are being used.People who sign up for Tinder might not agree to have their faces scanned on some other random app.
