Alma uses data analytics and machine learning to identify systemic and structural bias in housing data creating equal access to quality affordable homes regardless of race or origin.
Biases and discriminatory barriers in systems, processes and algorithms in housing, healthcare, education, economic development, and the criminal justice system are nothing new. We are part of a growing group of humanity-centred designers, systems thinkers, data scientists, mathematicians, tech experts, and community changemakers who are using data and technology as movement-building tools for a more equitable world.
