The Face Date team hopes to bring the Android-based app to i OS this year and to roll their app out to their fellow students in the coming months.
Valentine’s Day is around the corner, and as people’s thoughts turn to love, chocolate, and dating, a new app has been announced with a simple concept: it searches for matches based on photos that users upload of faces they find enticing.
People can even upload a picture of their own face to see others who look like them.
Also popular choices for people in Britain are Kate Moss, Davina Mc Call, Emilia Clarke, Naomi Campbell, Laura Whitmore and Jourdan Dunn.
“I mean, I understand where people are getting that from,” said Talia Goldstein, the CEO of the company partnering with Match on this facial recognition tool.
But in practice she says, the tool is actually based on a very intuitive, old-school, and not particularly sinister logic: “‘ Attractive’ means different things to different people.” Goldstein’s high-end matchmaking agency, Three Day Rule, is actually a pretty conventional operation, as far as these things go.
“We regularly hear that they love new, simple and fun ways to make better connections with a potential match.A dating app is offering people the chance to meet lookalikes of their favourite celebrities thanks to new facial recognition technology.Through the app, called Badoo, singletons can choose any well-known star they fancy – or even upload a picture of a non-famous person who they know – to find doppelgangers nearby.Developed by researchers at the New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT), the app is called Face Date.Unlike popular dating apps like Tinder or Bumble, there’s no swiping.
