Reminder: Register Now: Mining the Data: Algorithmic Bias in Housing Related Transactions

Join the National Fair Housing Training Academy (NFHTA) and the National Fair Housing Alliance (NFHA) for a conversation on Algorithmic Bias in Housing Related Transactions.

Technology is often thought of as automatic, objective, and exempt to human error. However, technology is not inherently equal. Data sets and algorithms that are not representative may be biased and perpetuate discrimination.

Protected groups are often affected unfairly by this bias in the form of higher rates and fees, less favorable terms and conditions, and denial of housing opportunities. As the housing industry relies increasingly on data and tech services, fair housing policies must be applied to ensure bias-free data, processes, and services.

Panelists will engage participants in a session that will dive into:

  • The basics of artificial intelligence and machine learning (AI/ML)
  • How tech bias plays a role in housing outcomes and transactions
  • Strategies for recognizing and eliminating data and technology bias
