Durham Police has paid global data broker Experian for UK postcode stereotypes built on 850 million pieces of information to feed into an artificial intelligence (AI) tool used in custody decisions, a Big Brother Watch investigation has revealed.

Durham Police is feeding Experian’s ‘Mosaic’ data, which profiles all 50 million adults in the UK[1] to classify UK postcodes, households and even individuals[2] into stereotypes, into its AI ‘Harm Assessment Risk Tool’ (HART). The 66 ‘Mosaic’ categories include ‘Disconnected Youth’, ‘Asian Heritage’ and ‘Dependent Greys’. ... decisions/

All the best,

There is one huge problem with that sort of thing.
Experian and the like collect and store the data by ADDRESS.
This means that anyone moving to a new (to them) home will be judged on the prior occupier.

This has happened to me and I had to threaten to take Experian to court because I had several applications for credit refused because the previous owner was a poor risk.
I forced them to write to the companies involved and explain that THEY (Experian) were wrong to give the advice that they had.
I also forced them to reset their data and to write to all equivalent companies that they had influenced.

I cannot remember the last time I forgot something ;)
