New app uses artificial intelligence to help with dating

By  | 

BOSTON, Mass. (WILX) - A new dating app is using an artificial intelligence wing-man to help daters find potential love connections.

Hootie is an AI that helps users navigate profiles on the app Icebrkr.
It helps give users suggestions on setting up a profile and interacting with other users.

Hootie can also determine if a user is a real person and if they are trying to be deceitful.

The app, which debuted on Valentine's Day, is free, but for now it is only available for use in Boston and across the state of Rhode Island.

The company does plan to expand it to other cities in the future.
