Despite the deluge of user data and increasingly sophisticated algorithms, can the dating apps of the future actually help more people find love? “I don’t think this kind of stuff [big data and machine learning] will actually change dating, nor will it be adopted,” Christian Rudder, a co-founder of dating site OKCupid and author of the book , tells Futurism.There’s no such thing as a perfect match, Rudder continues — most of the time people have no idea what they want, and certainly no algorithm does, either.Among its six episodes, which hit Netflix on Friday, is “Hang the DJ,” a heartbreaking hour that explores the emotional and technological limits of dating apps, and in doing so perfectly captures the modern desperation of trusting algorithms to find us love—and, in fact, of dating in this era at all.(Spoiler alert: major spoilers for the episode “Hang the DJ” follow.)The story follows Frank (Joe Cole) and Amy (Georgina Campbell), millennials navigating an opaque, AI-powered dating program they call “the System.” With disc-like smart devices, or “Coaches,” the antiseptically calculating System leads participants through mandatory relationships of varying durations in an enclosed campus, assuaging doubts with the cool assurance that it’s all for love: every assignment helps provide its algorithm with enough meaningful data to eventually pair you, at 99.8% accuracy, with “your perfect match.”The System designs and facilitates every encounter, from pre-ordering meals to hailing autonomous shuttles that carry each couple to a tiny-house suite, where they must cohabit until their “expiry date,” a predetermined time at which the relationship will end.

The System gains insight as each participant progresses through numerous relationships and uses the gathered data to eventually select an ultimate compatible other.” It finds your perfect match in 99.8 percent of cases, it says.

About 15 percent of Americans use dating apps, according to a ).

No matter how specific they are, these apps need to collect some data on you to function.

With a quick tap to grant them access to your Facebook page, combined with your behavior on the app itself, these companies have a truly staggering amount of information about each user.

In fact, the past five or so years of dating men might best be described by involved parties as bleak.

It’s into this landscape that dystopian anthology series has dropped its fourth season.

But as the market for dating apps fills up and they get even more laser-focused, the types of information these companies gather will likely become even more invasive. If there’s one thing that’s clear about how The System works in “Hang the DJ,” it’s that it relies on user feedback to select each person’s “perfect match.” For most dating apps in use today, feedback doesn’t make much of a difference.

But it’s not hard to imagine an app that incorporates your biometric data — say, your blood pressure and heart rate, which can biometric data with information from your text and verbal conversations to determine how well a date went?
