Uber has apparently been working on a new system that will be able to tell if you're drunk when you're ordering your ride... Great... Worst part is it's going to notify drivers you're drunk before they pick you up which means they'll be able to turn down the ride.
Uber is claiming that the new AI will be able to distinguish whether you're drunk based on how you're holding your phone. Sounds promising until a super clumsy person like myself drops there phone a bunch of times while waiting for their ride and then gets rejected. It will also base it's judgement on how fast you're walking, how many times you've tapped on the app, and where you're being picked up from. Which means I'll be walking a block away from the club to the church to get picked up so my chances are better 😂
As someone who's thrown up OUT THE WINDOW of my fair share of Ubers I totally understand why this new system has been created. However, the whole reason I take Ubers late on a Friday or Saturday after the club is so I don't drive drunk. Well it's not all bad. The system will help pair up drunk riders with drivers who are "trained" for these kinds of scenarios.
This still gonna be me in the back of the Uber
