Join Hume AI CEO, Dr. Alan Cowen, and the President of Tawkify, Kellie Ammerman, with host Matt Forte as they discuss “Love and the Future of Dating.” Amid the pandemic, more people have turned to dating apps in search of meaningful relationships.

Perhaps a combination of AI and human matchmakers is necessary to help people find love more easily in this ever-changing landscape of dating.

Later, Dr. Alan Cowen and Kellie Ammerman reflect on the importance of compatibility in relationships, and what the research tells us about successful (and unsuccessful) pairings.

Can technology create more love in the world? Hume AI CEO Dr. Alan Cowen discusses what it would take to develop the ideal dating app, optimized for deeper connections.
