Make Love with Your Data

We will tell the compelling story of how data science created not only a multi-million dollar business, but also one of the greatest single sources of love on earth. OkCupid is responsible for 40,000 first dates every single day-all because of our analytic approach to human interaction.
We’ll present actual data, beautifully visualized, on the ways that people behave when they think no one is looking. We'll examine, for example, the double-standards that men and women hold each other to. How age is much more than just a number. Why hiding user photos would make OkCupid more effective-and why users would never let us do it. The data will underpin our insider's take on entrepreneurship, emphasizing the ways we adapted to patterns in the numbers on our road from 0 accounts to 25 million. We'll interweave the story of our company with the story of our users, and by the end you will leave with a better understanding of not just OkCupid and data, but of human nature.
