Uber envisions technology that identifies drunk passengers
Ride-hailing apps, like Uber, have become known as safer alternatives to driving when intoxicated. Now the company is looking to learn a lot more about its late-night riders. Uber filed a patent application recently, first spotted by CNN, that envisions using machine learning to detect whether a potential passenger is behaving abnormally. The patent application is vague about what exactly constitutes an "abnormal state," but seems to be referring to intoxication and fatigue.
