OkCupid: Funny Case of Online Dating & Mistaken Identity
Commonwealth Club - SF Club Office
What happens when four Harvard math grads tackle the world of matchmaking, dating and love? They brew up an arithmetic love potion that exposes highly analytical data about relationships and what makes the perfect match. With more than 8 million active users, Match.com and OkCupid can mine for quirky dating trends - revealing, for example, that sometimes a mutual interest in horror movies is a better predictor of a love pairing than a shared interest in God. Spend the night with Sam Yagan to find out more about what makes your current or future beau a match made in heaven (or not!) He'll use quirky trends, infographics and an algorithm for the management of asynchronous qualities to predict the ultimate love connection.
