Re: Algorithm and data
And let's not forget good documentation. If conditions change, especially if the original algorithm writer is gone, good documentation can make the differerence between a smooth transition or the need for starting over from scratch.

Re: Algorithm and data
< At Airbnb, refining the algorithm means looking at search results and looking for the conditions that produced lousy results, explained Gupta.>

That's a very important step in the process. Based on what I see in searches on many sites, they don't bother with that. It can be very frustrating to put in clear, simple terms and get back irrelevant results.

Algorithm and data
Alogorithm and data are both very important for a good software. More precisely, data model and algorithm should be designed/chosen together so that they fit well with each other. You cannot simply say algorithm A is always better than algorithm B - it depends on what data set you want them to operate upon.
