Uber’s New Patent Application Shows They Want to Use AI to Spot Drunk Passengers

The Infinite Brief
Taxi app company Uber has applied for a patent to use artificial intelligence to determine how drunk potential passengers might be.

The app used to summon rides could also feed other information to the driver, including a passenger’s location, how accurately they are typing and even the angle they are holding their phone at.

It could help drivers who do not want to pick up inebriated riders.

Critics expressed concern that an app that could predict user behavior could be used by drivers wishing to prey on vulnerable passengers.
