Love meets Tech: The hackathon to help you to fall in love and to stay in love! #wehacklove
#ForeverAlone – In big cities it seems particularly difficult to meet new people, not to mention a partner. This is not only sad, but can also be dangerous, as John Cacioppo describes in his TED Talk „The lethality of loneliness“
Not only is this hackathon about finding love, but also staying in love. About 50% of marriage end up in a divorce. Non-monogamous relationships are on the rise, and couples explore their sexuality with more freedom than ever. Yet very little focus is given to relationships in the tech world.
Was ist ein Hackathon?
What is AI and Machine Learning, how could we design for empathy and trust between man and machine and what impact has AI on online dating?
With developments in AI moving full steam ahead, we’ll have a general introduction to AI, the roots and current state of technology. Afterwards, the focus is on empathy and trust towards algorithms and the question, how ML and AI might impact online dating. Possible challenges and ethical questions will be covered as well, to hopefully start a fruitful discussion afterwards.
