Audrey personal assistant being tested by Hinge
Dating apps are quite popular these days, but Hinge aims to take the online dating game to a whole new level by adding artificial intelligence to it. After switching from swiping to "stories," Hinge is now testing a personal assistant known as Audrey.
According to the official website of an earlier Audrey release, "We know the back-and-forth of getting to the first date can be frustrating, if not futile. That’s why we’re introducing Audrey." The basic explanation of how Audrey works can be reduced to just three steps:
- the user selects the people he/she is interested in
- Audrey reaches out, introduces the user, and schedules a date "if the feeling is mutual"
- Audrey "provides data and feedback along the way" to help the user "find that perfect match"
Sadly, the last two steps above were not mentioned by the web site of a more recent Audrey version. Everything is quite shady at this time, but those interested could sign up to test the service. If everything goes well, we will probably hear more about Audrey in the future.
