Conditional_Lover – A physical bot that automates your Tinder

Created by Saurabh Datta, Conditional_Lover is a bot that unlike its counterparts that live hidden in servers, has a physical appearance with a task to automate your Tinder using its "eyes" and "fingers". It does this by analysing photos on your phone (webcam) and then selects or rejects it (prongs) based on an algorithm that combines your preferred age, golden ratio, smile, glasses, ethnicity etc.

Softwares have long been seen as just programs but with rise in trends of their mastery some of us always ask this question of their being, action and creations. Thus objectifying it, came with an aim to make it more debatable in those terms. The underlying intention was to see what it takes for conditional logics to appear as pseudo unconscious AI. A kind of idiosyncratic manipulation of rule-based behaviour to achieve different ends, reflecting on human dependency over software decisions.
