Participants were asked to rate the probability that a person who used a particular word would pay back the money. The results were interesting. Borrowers who said "god" or "promise" were less likely to pay back the money, giving students the impression that data is becoming an increasingly important tool, the possibility of combining technology with finance is huge.
