The growing use of innovations in machine learning, artificial intelligence (“AI”), and alternative data are raising new fair lending risks for lenders. The authors address such risks, beginning with the use of the data, followed by an overview of fair lending laws and enforcement. They then turn to protocols for lenders to carefully consider to avoid fair lending violations when developing and using AI/machine learning models that use alternative data.
