Vicarious has created an algorithm which can beat CAPTCHA by mimicking the way the human brain processes images and visual clues (apparently not mine).
CAPTCHA stands for Completely Automated Public Turing test and is used to identify computers vs, humans. It was first introduced in the 1990’s to prevent people from using automated bots to set up fake accounts on websites.
It works by combining both image recognition and semantic meaning – something algorithms have never managed to do simultaneously. Until now.
