Staggering implications: Smartphones may soon use our gait to see if we’re drunk

Researchers from Stanford University and the University of Pittsburgh have developed software that harnesses a smartphone’s built-in accelerometer, and uses this to determine whether its user might be drunk -- based entirely on how they walk.

“Every smartphone currently manufactured has many embedded sensors,” Brian Suffoletto, associate professor in emergency medicine at Stanford University, told Digital Trends. “One of these sensors is a 3-axis accelerometer. We accessed this sensor and sampled the movement in the forward-backward, side-to-side, and up-down direction 100 times per minute while individuals were walking in a straight line using a free app, Phyphox. We then cleaned the data and generated features related to walking such as step speed and variability of side-to-side movement. [After that, we] trained a model where each person served as their own control and examined how well these models, when shown new data on the individual, could discriminate between periods of intoxication and sobriety.”

But as people acclimatize to life under quarantine and increasingly rely on the internet for work as well as entertainment, this period of crisis has also emerged as both technology’s ultimate challenge and a glimpse into the future tech giants have long been working towards.

Over the past few weeks, the pandemic’s attendant effects have enabled a reality where tech sits at the top of every food chain. For people across the globe who are indefinitely stuck indoors, online tools have taken the role of their windows to the outside world.
