Japan wants to fund an AI matchmaking system to help increase birth rates?


In order to combat the dip in fertility rate, Japan has plans to allocate around 2 billion yen (~RM78k) to fund an AI tech to help matchmake individuals to increase the birth rate in the country. While there are already human-run matchmaking services available, the AI system could potentially increase the success of getting individuals matched.

As of today, there is no official information on when the AI matchmaking system will be available to the citizens of Japan. Not only that, but a socio-cultural and medical anthropologist from the Temple University in Japan also noted that the system would be ineffective if individuals are not interested in dating in the first place.

With all that said, what are your thoughts on Japan funding an AI matchmaker to solve the decrease in birth rates in the country? Let us know on our Facebook page and for more updates like this, stay tuned to TechNave.com.
