OkCupid prods daters to ask what truly matters to them in provocative campaign
OkCupid launched its new global marketing campaign “Ask Yourself” to show what’s really matters for them in relationships.
The most popular topic is, of course, voting and politics. Travelling and music become second best topics in 2019.

Dating apps need women, Advertisers need diversity, AI companies offer a solution: Fake people
Startups working with Artificial Intelligence started selling pictures and images of computer-generated people.
Due to AI creating human faces after it was trained on massive databases of real people’s photos, the created images are very life-like and can hardly be identified as fakes.
This type of images allows a lot of companies to create their ads and models without needing real human beings.
AI experts, however, worry that the fakes will empower a new generation of scammers.
