A compatibility assessment algorithm is being developed for dating apps
Dr. Timothy Sexton, a specialist in the human genome, as a result of sixteen years of research was able to find an answer to the question of why people often feel disappointed on the first date, despite the fact that they before the meeting enjoyed communicating in applications.
According to the scientist, in the formula of compatibility, personal qualities and common interests are important components, but the decisive element is sexual chemistry, the secret of which is in the DNA. Traditional dating apps cannot guarantee that when they meet in person, they will feel physical attraction.
Dr. Sexton founded DNA Romance, a company that develops the DRom 1.0 algorithm that uses genetic data to predict whether potential partners will be romantically involved on a first date.
