Uber will identify drunk passengers


06/11/2018


Uber's online taxi order service has developed a system for determining whether a passenger calling a taxi is drunk. Artificial intelligence will collect data on the behavior of a particular user and compare it with previous trips, based on such signs as the speed of printing and the number of typos, the angle of the gadget, the speed of walking, the location of the user. If the system finds that the user is very drunk, it will warn drivers about it, will allow to take the order only to the driver with the appropriate experience or not to let the passenger in a car at all.

Uber company filed an application for an artificial intelligence system patent, which should determine whether a potential customer is drunk. On Thursday, a patent application was filed by Uber to the US Patent and Trademark Office. According to the application, the system will analyze how the client normally uses the application, on the basis of which it will be able to calculate the cases in which the client's behavior is different.

Among the indicators that the artificial intelligence will assess are the accuracy and speed of data entry, the features of interaction with the interface, the angle at which the device is located, the speed of walking. The user's location, time of day, day of the week will also be evaluated.
In this case, the system will evaluate the user's behavior precisely in comparison with his own behavior in other cases.

For example, if an order comes from a person who walks on the street at one o'clock in the morning, where there are many bars, and at the same time makes a lot of typos, then he is drunk with a high degree of probability. In most cases, we are not talking about not allowing such a person to use the service (although such an option is also provided). In general, Uber is going to warn drivers about the possible condition of the passenger, and also allow to take this order only to drivers with the necessary experience. Also, based on an assessment of the passenger's condition, the system may not offer him the option of traveling with other passengers.
