Almost like they look at your income and decide on that.

Society tends to assume - wrongly - that computers are impartial machines that do not discriminate because they cannot think like humans.

Complete fucking lie. Pick up a calculator, type in 1+1, no matter who does this, it will ALWAYS say 2. No matter how long the sum is, the only way to get a different result is if the person typing in the numbers is doing something different.

Computers are utterly impartial, not liking the answer is your own bias.

discriminating between men and women despite not asking for gender information

This is the exact point. If you haven't given it this information it will NOT discriminate based on that criterion. If you don't like the answers you are given, you will need to address the differences in the source data.

What happened to credit companies making their own decisions for their business? You can almost feel females and non-white people getting different interest rates coming. These current credit companies will swallow to get in with the looney lefties, including the BBC.
