Mumbai, February 5: A Russian software developer has revealed that he used artificial intelligence (AI) to help him find and marry his wife. Alexander Zhadan (23) said he employed ChatGPT and other AI bots to filter out bad matches on Tinder and chat with potential dates. He met about 5,000 women online before finding his “AI-endorsed soulmate”, Karina Imranovna.
Zhadan told the Russian news agency RIA Novosti that he trained ChatGPT to communicate like him, make small talk, book dates, and even suggest a proposal. He also set up filters to show him the women he should meet in person. He said he met Karina in real life and continued to use the AI platform to analyse their correspondence and advise him on what to do and say.
