Amy Webb – Winning Big at the Online Dating Game

2013, Cultural Studies
Presented By: Amy Webb

“There is an algorithm for love, but it’s one you write yourself.” Amy Webb had gone on enough unsuccessful dates to know that Boy + Girl did not always equal true love. In this witty talk, she describes her highly scientific action plan for gaming the online dating game. After conducting some serious data collection and analysis that entailed taking her computer with her on dates, she drew up a prioritized set of criteria or data points and developed a scoring system. This enabled her to ignore the algorithms built into dating sites and instead use mathematics to match herself up with prospects. But even this was not enough. Watch and find out what other highly unusual tactics she used to collect additional information and achieve a stunning result.
