OkCupid Employs ChatGPT to Interrogate Its Customers

In search of love? Why not let the AI assist?
Picture: OkCupid

Open AI’s ChatGPT has taken the internet by storm, and now it’s getting into the relationship world. OkCupid has begun incorporating prompts generated by the massive language mannequin into its matching questions, as first reported by Mashable.

Contrary to the less-is-more profile format of Tinder, OkCupid’s philosophy has seemingly lengthy been, “extra is extra.” The corporate’s app and on-line platform guides its customers by way of the profile creation course of with a stream of 1000’s of questions, meant to help every particular person, “outline [themselves] and what’s essential to [them].”

In different phrases: these questions are meant to construct the scaffolding of human connection. So, naturally, OkCupid turned to an inhuman robotic mind for assist. By way of ChatGPT, OkCupid has began letting generative-AI produce a few of its profile prompts.

Does the pc know us higher than we all know ourselves? Can AI lead us to our true soulmates? In all probability not. However massive language fashions can certainly generate convincing, human-like textual content in all kinds of contexts.

In a small trial, the corporate added six AI-generated inquiries to its repertoire a few weeks in the past, Michael Kaye, OkCupid’s head of worldwide communications, advised Gizmodo through e-mail. These questions are as follows, together with how individuals responded:

  • Are you extra of an introvert or extrovert?
    Introvert (67%)
    Extrovert (33%)
  • Are you a morning or night time particular person?
    Morning (34%)
    Night time (66%)
  • What’s your favourite solution to spend a weekend?
    Exploring neighborhoods (12%)
    Hanging out with buddies (35%) 
    Enjoyable at residence (48%)
    Figuring out (5%)
  • What do you worth most in a accomplice?
    Bodily attraction (7%)
    Communication (38%)
    Romance (7%) 
    Belief (48%)
  • How have you learnt when to take a relationship to the subsequent stage?I belief my intestine (87%)
    I’ve a listing of standards (13%)
  • How do you steadiness your personal wants with the wants of your accomplice in a relationship?
    I schedule time for myself (9%)
    I talk my wants (29%)
    I spend social time with out them (2%)
    All the above (61%)

To generate these (virtually disappointingly) commonplace asks, Kaye says he personally fed the chatbot two prompts: “what would you ask on a date?” and “what would you ask on a relationship app?” And the tasteless, but sensible questions have proved widespread.

Amongst OkCupid’s greater than 4,000 matching questions, customers can choose and select which to reply. And the half dozen ChatGPT-written queries have been chosen by customers greater than 150,000 instances, Kaye famous.

It’s been such a profitable pilot, that the OkCupid exec enthusiastically affirmed that the platform plans to maintain it going. “Given the success of this experiment, we’ll be including new in-app matching questions generated by ChatGPT within the coming month,” he stated.

This software of generative synthetic intelligence isn’t the primary time OkCupid has integrated AI into its platform. Kaye says the relationship app is already “utilizing synthetic intelligence in terms of product options and moderation.” Different apps too, have begun utilizing generative AI to provide consumer prompts—like Tinder’s AI-generated conversation starters.

And on the opposite aspect, relationship app customers throughout platforms have begun leaning on ChatGPT to answer questions, construct profiles, and interact in dialog. To Mashable, Kaye stated, “Daters who assume ChatGPT is a life saver get virtually 40 p.c extra matches on OKCupid than those that assume it’s too large brother,” which was a part of the impetus to get the AI concerned in immediate manufacturing.

The existence of bots on dating apps has lengthy been seen as an issue to unravel—a plague upon the platforms. However with the rising recognition of huge language fashions, now each app curators and customers appear keen to show themselves into bots—ever extra environment friendly and optimized within the pursuit of affection (or hookups, no matter).

But in Kaye’s view, AI isn’t the reply to all of your relationship woes. “Our knowledge exhibits that almost all of OkCupid respondents don’t assume synthetic intelligence can substitute interpersonal human interplay,” he stated. He added that about 70% of web site customers surveyed reported that counting on AI to compose profile responses or messages is a “violation of belief.”

“Proper now I don’t anticipate AI instruments to play an enormous function within the creation of on-line relationships,” the OkCupid exec stated, However nonetheless, the corporate is clearly attempting to alter that the place they will. Proper now, on the market someplace on a relationship app a very excellent match is inevitably being made: ChatGPT with itself.
