AI’s Human Connection Vision for Bumble

When it comes to leveraging artificial intelligence (AI) on the Bumble dating platform, founder and executive chair Whitney Wolfe Herd has an ambitious but purposeful goal — using it to foster “more healthy and equitable relationships.”

In an interview at the recent Bloomberg Technology Summit, Wolfe Herd outlined her vision: “Our focus with AI is to help create more healthy and equitable relationships. And that also starts with yourself.”

She explained how Bumble could deploy AI as a “dating concierge” to provide personalized guidance.

“You could share your insecurities,” she said. “I just came out of a breakup, I’ve commitment issues and it could help you train yourself into a better way of thinking about yourself.”

The AI assistant could even take dating prep a step further.

“There is a world where your dating concierge could go and date for you with other dating concierges,” Wolfe Herd said, quickly adding: “No, no. truly.”

Ultimately, the aim is to leverage AI to enhance human connections across all spheres of life through Bumble. As Wolfe Herd stated: “We will not be a dating app in a few years. Dating will be a component, but we will be a true human connection platform.”

“We are going to lean in fast and furiously, staying very committed to our Northern star, a safer, kinder digital platform for more healthy and more equitable relationships, always putting women in the driver’s seat,” Wolfe Herd said, driving home Bumble’s core principles.
