Uber Technologies Inc. developed an artificial intelligence chatbot that provides recommendations to customers of a food delivery service and helps them place orders faster. Uber’s move is part of a race between companies to see who can better integrate artificial intelligence into their popular apps.

Details of Uber’s program were discovered inside code hidden within the company’s Eats app, offering a glimpse of a feature that has yet to be made public. When the user launches the chatbot, the software displays a message that says, “The AI ​​assistant was created to help you find relevant restaurant dishes and more.”
