The app, called Bernie, uses artificial intelligence to select your dates for you by weeding out the winners and losers.And the app is designed to work with multiple sites like Tinder and Plenty of Fish using facial recognition software that learns to match your criteria.Once a potential date is found based on the preferences of the user, Bernie engages in a chat, asking a series of questions and determining if the responses are positive or negative to weed out candidates.

And Long is studying the human face in an effort to fine tune Bernie. Long named Bernie after his friend from college who died from an enlarged heart in 2009.
