Uber Will Notify You If You're Drunk Before You Get In Vehicle

The user's current state is also determined by this system based on how they handle their smartphone. To analyze the speed and accuracy of typing the address, the angle of the device, the location and velocity of the potential passenger.

At least that's according to a patent application spotted by CNN with the title "predicting user state using machine learning".

Uber is working on technology that could determine just how drunk passengers are when ordering a ride.

The drivers' share of the blame will soon get fixed, as Uber already announced plans to have a more restrictive screening process for the drivers, including criminal background and driving history checks.

Uber may be able to tell when you've had a few too many drinks.

Uber has filed a patent for a new artificial intelligence system that can detect when passengers are drunk.

Knowing whether a passenger is behaving unusually can help mitigate any issues before they become problems. The system could also pair riders with drivers who are experienced to handle them.
