Triposo Labs

At Triposo we build travel guides by applying algorithms to all the data we can get our hands on. But before data becomes useful, you have to play with it. And we do. From little scripts to huge mapreduces, we try all kinds of stuff. Sometimes it works and you'll see the results the next time you download one of our ipad travel guides, sometimes we end up with nothing.

But sometimes something slightly unexpected and interesting happens. This is where triposo labs comes in.
Here we publish experiments that might not immediately applicable in producing better travel guides, but that are still interesting. Browse around and let us know what you think!
