In this episode, USC Thornton School of Music graduate student and composer, Wil Brumbach, goes on a search for love enlisting the help of some powerful matchmakers - engineers. He tests the hypothesis of a love formula through highly scientific means - by putting himself “out there” and consulting with data scientists at eHarmony and USC's Information Sciences Institute, Aram Galstyan and Greg Ver Steeg.
The Viterbi computer science duo are using methods inspired by quantum physics to improve the matchmaking algorithms that run eHarmony, one of the country’s most successful online dating sites. Responsible for nearly 5% of marriages in America, the engineers at eHarmony are on a quest to manufacture the ultimate love algorithm that can predict happy long lasting relationships. Can they help Wil find his happily ever after?
