Airbnb announces Aerosolve, an open-source machine learning software package

Home-rental company Airbnb introduced a new open-source project called Aerosolve.

The new tool, announced at Airbnb’s 2015 OpenAir developer conference in San Francisco, powers new pricing tips for hosts. Written mostly in the Java and Scala programming languages, Aerosolve can also more intelligently rank and order things like images.
