Uber sure does seem to love getting itself into some controversial situations, and it could very well wade into yet another if one of its patent applications becomes actual tech.
Uber has applied for a patent for "Safe routing for navigation systems." According to the patent, it would allow users to select a route that's perhaps safer than the fastest or otherwise most optimal route would be. It could take all manner of data into account, including crime statistics, academic databases and even social media posts.
