AI's Critical Flaw Exposed

Amplifying Biases and Denying Deserving Candidates

In an era where Artificial Intelligence (AI) is revolutionizing industries, its application in the alternative financing and business loan sector raises significant concerns for merchants. As corporate America heavily leans into AI for efficiency in decision-making, many consumers find themselves unfairly rejected for loans, jobs, and memberships. A PRNEWS & Other report highlights cases where individuals, despite eligibility, were denied access to essential services due to AI's lack of recourse or appeal processes. This rigid reliance on Artificial Intelligence overlooks the nuanced understanding of individual circumstances, amplifying historical biases and often misinterpreting data, leaving deserving candidates out in the cold​​.

Imagine a small family-owned business, facing a cash flow problem, applies for capital online to cover payroll. Despite their long-term stability and contributions to their community, an AI system quickly declines their application due to recent financial downturns in their industry, ignoring their potential for recovery and consistent performance in the past. This perfectly illustrates the desperate need for more nuanced and human-centric evaluations in lending decisions.
