It seems that everyone has a soft spot for the matchmaker.
Theresa Williams, CEO of Atwood Technology, will get the chance to pitch their ideas to the Dragon’s Den on May 11th. Dragon’s Den, for those who do not know, is a CBC television program where contestants pitch ideas to a board of investors, and if successful get to see their ideas funded.
While Kipici.com is new to the dating site world, it brings something different to the table. Using what they call ontology-based human semantics, otherwise known as the artificial intelligence behind the Web 3.0 push, Kipici.com is able to more accurately personalize their dating service.
To back up their claims, Kipici.com have just matched their first couple, from St. John, NB. Theressa claims, “Creating innovative technology is motivating, but utilizing this technology to make a positive difference in society and people’s lives is extremely heartwarming and brings a gigantic smile to our faces!”.
Atwood Technology feel their more personalized approach to dating will prove more effective than other sites, hopefully gaining them a spot amongst such giants as Match, eHarmony, and Plenty of Fish. Atwood have also become a finalist for “Most Promising Start–up” at the New Brunswick KIRA Awards, which will be announced on May 5th, 2011.
