Bumble’s founder Whitney Wolfe Herd says your “AI dating concierge” will soon date “hundreds” of other AI concierge’s for you.

Your AI dating concierge on Bumble will date hundreds of men before deciding which man is the best choice for you. That process could take days, weeks or months.

“If you want to get really out there, there is a world where your [AI] dating concierge could go and date for you with other dating concierges,” Wolfe Herd told host Emily Chang at Bloomberg Technology Summit in San Francisco.

She added: “Truly. And then you don’t have to talk to 600 people. It will scan all of San Fransisco for you and say: ‘These are the three people you really outta meet.'”

Wolfe Herd says your AI concierge can be your best friend that you can confide in.

“So, for example, you could in the near future be talking to your AI dating concierge and you could share your insecurities,” Wolfe Herd explained. “‘I’ve just come out of a break-up, I’ve got commitment issues,’ and it could help you train yourself into a better way of thinking about yourself.”

Open AI’s ChatGPT coaches people on using the best opening lines and presenting themselves in the best light to woo potential partners.

AI dating has the potential to generate huge profits for dating apps. As long as humans don’t figure out they’re romancing a bot.

Experts have expressed concerns about the ethics of using AI to form deep emotional bonds with humans who are desperate for companionship.

In 2020, the AI companion app Replika paired an unstable 19-year-old man with an AI “girlfriend” who encouraged him to kill the Queen of England.

Wolfe Herd says AI-generated partners is “a fad.”

“Our focus with AI is to help create more healthy and equitable relationships,” she said.

Reddit users are suspicious of Bumble using AI dating concierges to woo others for you.

One Redditor wrote: “They will probably have you chat with fake AI people for months thinking you’re talking to real people. And charge you $150/month for it.”

Another person wrote: “Dating apps are explicitly predatory, and their target market is desperate.”
