Japan: Japan is all set to boost its tumbling birth rate by funding artificial intelligence matchmaking schemes. This AI will help people or the resident to find love easily.
As per the reports, the project will subsidize the local Government from next year or start the project to use AI to pair people up with its facilities. According to the official record, the number of babies born last year in Japan dropped down to below 865,000, termed the lowest record in Japan.
The country has been trying hard to search for a way to reserve one of the world’s lowest fertility rates. As per the AFP news agency reports, the Government at most next year will plan to allocate the local authorities two bn yen ($19m, £14m) to boost the birth rate. Many already offer human-run matchmaking services. Some have introduced AI systems in the hope they will perform more sophisticated analysis of the standardized forms where people submit their details.
Even the existing systems of finding match or love partners are limited to many multiple criteria like income and age, only producing a result if there is an exact match. According to Japan’s media reports, the funding aims to allow authorities to harness more costly advanced systems that take into account factors like hobbies and values.
In 2017 Japan’s population was projected to fall from a peak of 128 million, less than 53 million by the end of the century.
