IntroAnalytics has developed a unique recommendation engine for people introductions that can easily be integrated into your website. Our algorithms are based on a combination of mathematics and psychology to accurately identify who will want to date or meet whom.
CEO Gavin Potter was mentioned in the NYT article on the Netflix recommendation engine I wrote about recently.
He’s a 48-year-old Englishman, a retired management consultant with an undergraduate degree in psychology and a master’s in operations research. He has worked for Shell, PricewaterhouseCoopers, and IBM. In 2006, he left his job at IBM to explore the idea of starting a PhD in machine learning, a field in which he has no formal training.
The technology has been applied to yesnomayB.com. At iDate, IntroAnalytics will have a demo to show how a computer can predict who you will like and whether you would be a good match for someone else. I can’t wait to see how it works.
