Credit scores have been used for decades to assess consumer creditworthiness, but their scope is far greater now that they are powered by algorithms: not only do they consider vastly more data, in both volume and type, but they increasingly affect whether you can buy a car, rent an apartment, or get a full-time job.


We meet:

Chi Chi Wu, staff attorney at National Consumer Law Center  

Michele Gilman, professor of law at University of Baltimore

Mike de Vere, CEO Zest AI

This episode was produced by Jennifer Strong, Karen Hao, Emma Cillekens and Anthony Green. We’re edited by Michael Reilly.
