The Varsity, investigative report: Behind the Aphrodite Project: how a matchmaking algorithm paired up thousands of U of T romantics

Excerpt from The Varsity, in a report co-authored with Ana Pereira: “If you are tired of Tinder, Bumble, Hinge, or the general flakiness of online dating, meet the Aphrodite Project: a student-run initiative that aimed to find the perfect match for students through a matchmaking algorithm. The Aphrodite Project is a free online matchmaking service that worked to bring two users in contact based on their responses to a questionnaire, with openings in a new Pandemic Edition until July 17.”

You can find a link to full report at The Varsity here.  I’ve also included supplemental notes, including highlights of the project’s privacy policy, in a Reddit discussion on r/UofT linked here.
