Japan wants more people to go on dates. It wants to increase the birth rate. There are fewer babies in Japan. Artificial intelligence will match couples and help them find love. This will cost $19 million to set up. There are many matchmaking services in Japan. With these, people have to fill out forms on hobbies and interests. A worker then matches people. The AI project will automate this system. It will give better analysis of data and get better matches.

The government wants the population to increase. Japan's fertility rate is one of the lowest in the world. Japanese women have an average of 1.36 children. The government said it wants to reverse the decline in the birth rate. The population is ageing quickly because people are living longer. The longevity rate for women is the highest in the world. There are fewer younger workers to pay for the pension and welfare of retired people.
