The world of matchmaking won’t have to rely on luck, as much as math, thanks to one very accomplished teenager.
Yunseo Choi, a senior at Phillips Exeter Academy in New Hampshire, came up with a matching theory that can be applied to people looking for a life partner.
Instead of matching a finite number of people, the 18-year-old figured out how to pair an infinite number of potential couples.

Choi’s matchmaking tool that uses algorithms came in first place Wednesday night in a prestigious STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) competition that’s run by the biotech company Regeneron and the Society for Science. Read More >>
Every startup has an incredible story to share with the world. Some stories are centered around a “Eureka!” moment. This is when a startup founder figures out a practical, yet genius, method to quickly and efficiently solve a problem facing many people.
