Semantic Matching Applied to Relationship Matching


The on-line dating industry currently has over 1400 different sites, including known sites such as eHarmony, and LavaLife, however, research indicates a general dissatisfaction in the quality of relationship matches generated by these sites. The research proposal will investigate the use of new semantic technologies in providing a higher quality matching service. The commercial partner, Atwood Technology Inc., is expecting to leverage this technology to gain a competitive edge over the existing competition.
