It’s the era of data-driven business. It’s the era of upending old business models. It’s the era of using information to make decisions.
(Horrifying, I know.)
So let’s cut to it: Would it be legal for a company or person to correlate renter demographics and other information with average cost to rehabilitate rental units and derive rent based on expected cost to clean the place up after the renter leaves? Think actuarial tables, like for insurance, except applied to rental properties.
Assume this really, truly is as blind as life insurance is, for example: Nobody’s got their thumb on the algorithm, nobody’s working their biases into the models. It’s literally just a simple statistical regression.
