Aerosolve is an open source machine learning library built by machine learning engineers on the Pricing and Availability team at Airbnb. From the project’s inception we have focused on improving the understanding of data sets by assisting people in interpreting complex data with easy to understand models. Instead of hiding meaning beneath many layers of model complexity, Aerosolve models expose data to the light of understanding. The library was initially used to build the machine learning models that empower the Price Tips and Smart Pricing tools for Airbnb hosts. It has gradually become an important part of machine learning infrastructure at Airbnb and is used by multiple teams across the company.
