#29: Hotter on Bumble, Part 2

If our potential matches on Bumble feel hotter than other apps, who's making that decision? What does this mean for us normals?

Reynald Adolphe caught our eye with his blog post: "Is Bumble's Algorithm Filtering Ugly People?" He is a software engineer and teaches other people how to be engineers, too. He tweets: @reynaldadolphe

Chris Volinsky was part of the winning team for the Netflix Prize to develop a better recommender system. He's assistant vice president of big data research at AT&T, and he tweets: @statpumpkin
