Say goodbye to the humiliating housemate interview

The startling growth of the proptech sector has been matched by that of algorithm-based dating apps like Tinder and eHarmony.

So a combination of the two surely has to be a match made in heaven.

Promising to use “unique algorithms to scientifically pair each client with compatible housemates”, Like-Minded Living founder Denzel Matsaudza boasts: “Elements of this algorithm are used to match doctors to hospitals and the technology is used in some of the most powerful search engines.”

Hurrah, I hear you say. No more humiliating housemate interviews. If you’re after the quiet life, you’ll be placed with like-minded quiet folk. If you’re a football fan, you’ll be with fellow footie fans… let’s just hope the algorithm is sophisticated enough to differentiate between Chelsea and Spurs.

Have your say
