Uber Seeks Patent for System That Would ‘Pre-Match’ Riders and Drivers Using AI

Uber recently filed a patent application for a system that would leverage artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning to match potential riders and drivers based on predictions of customers’ tendencies.

Ride-hailing giant Uber is seeking to patent a system that forecasts customers’ potential ride requests by feeding “context data” contained in Uber user profiles, such as usage history or location data, into a “machine-learned model” that uses AI to find patterns in users’ habits.
