Ever struggled to hold a phone steady while ordering an Uber? There have been incidents of passengers physically attacking the drivers in the past. Uber AI will plug in all these algorithms into its system to detect how high or drunk the passenger is and then change its services like drivers with a good amount of experience with drunk passengers will be matched with their rider or the rider can be asked to come to a well-lit pick-up point. Past trip information may be used to "identify how the user activity of the current trip request deviates from previous (or "normal") behavior for that user", the application says.
In theory, the system could generate an alert to drivers or match suspected drunk passengers only with specially trained drivers.
"For example, when the likelihood is comparatively very high, the user may not be matched with any provider, or limited to providers with experience or training with users having an unusual state", according to the patent. To some, the concept may be counterintuitive to why they choose to hail an Uber. And when the likelihood is comparatively low, the system may match riders "normally".
Drivers may receive a notification that the person requesting the ride could be intoxicated, which also could result in more experienced drivers being routed to help riders who could present a problem for someone less experienced.
