In the same way that it took us a long time to realize that the suitcase with wheels was invented, it was only a matter of time until someone combined artificial intelligence and Tinder to flirt. And with the help of Aleksandr Zhadan, we can now consider that box occupied. This young resident of Moscow programmed OpenAI’s Chat GPT to talk to more than 5,000 women, 5,239 if we want. And he married one of them.
According to an interview, when Zhadan broke up their relationship in 2021, he started exploring the possibility of dating through apps, but it became more complicated and time-consuming. A year ago it started using OpenAI’s AI to do the hardest job: filtering.
He programmed the second version of Chat GPT to find women who match his likes and dislikes. For example, he leaked photos of women drinking alcohol on their profiles and mentioned their zodiac sign in their bios. He then connects it to Google Calendar to confirm appointments.
The program seems to work well, except that in some aspects it takes liberties that Zhadan does not know: he shows that he will come on the date with flowers or chocolates and if this does not happen, his -date asks for it. Time passed and new versions of the digital assistant were updated until Chat GPT-4 solved many of its problems.
This is how almost a year after the start of his project Zhadan met Karina Vyalshakaeva and, after a few months of talking to the AI (without knowing it) Zhadan took a step forward and started to behave like a man. The young woman pointed out that she was not angry when she learned about her partner’s strategy, although it surprised her.
The relationship becomes formal when Karina notices that he wants to go to a wedding and AI suggests to Zhadan that maybe he should propose to Karina. And that’s how they got married. Zhadan pointed out that he does not plan, at the moment, to commercialize his program, but it is clearly in his plans because, if he doesn’t, someone will. And this young man not only has the experience, but also the knowledge to judge one of his greatest interests for many years: AI, as shown on his own website. Another option, a shame for lovers of romantic movies, is that this is all a strategy for the couple to sell the program. All is equal in love.
