Uber wants to patent technology to detect drunk riders

According to the application, Uber envisions a system integrated into the Uber app that can identify unusual behavior by would-be passengers using algorithms.
"The system uses the data about past trips to train a computer model to predict a user state of a user submitting a trip request".
The proposed software will track user behaviour such as typos, how long it takes to request a ride, how accurately the user clicks buttons and even their walking speed. The time of day and pickup location might also be a factor-someone trying to order a ride at 2:30 in the morning from somewhere packed with bars and nightclubs is unlikely to be sober.
Given drunk people are not known to be the most lucid, sensible or even polite people, certainly here in the United Kingdom, the system could alert Uber drivers to the fact their upcoming customer is flying a few sheets to the wind.
If irregularities such as typographical errors, amount of time spent to make the trip request, or the user's accuracy in pressing an interface element are detected, the system would warn the responding driver to be on his toes.
It would be cool if drivers got extra money for picking up drunk passengers. The official report says the company is working on artificial intelligence tech for this new patent.
