      The opposite of this. Weird ways in which AIs were primarily trained for but will have its learning curve deconstructed by such a simple artifact as a colorful painting.

      hCaptcha is a good alternative to Google. It pays website owners for each captcha solved.

      Captcha needs abolishing. I had one a couple of nights ago that took me through about 5 different sets of images before telling me that I had failed, even though I had tapped on the correct images. On my next attempt at logging in, it let me log in to a website after just 1 set of images. It's slowly getting worse and worse.

            That's clever. Now they don't even have to pay for low-paid workers to do the data labeling. 🤔😮

                          Well, as for myself, I gamify it. Whenever I get one of those, I solve it as quickly as possible so as to push myself and see if I get it all right.

                              CAPTCHA is an acronym for “completely automated public Turing test to tell computers and humans apart.” This can be with images/audio or whatever we will see in the future.
                              Why do sites use it?
                              CAPTCHA is used to prevent bots from automatically submitting forms with SPAM or other unwanted content. Google and other companies use it to prevent bots from creating multiple Gmail accounts.
                              finally we're not training here any ML model.

                              Lol, please dont fill it in. But I hate these kind of posts on facebook... surely they're made to gather information (most likely for running adverts I guess?)

                                    But didn't the AI already have the info about the images? Because it wouldn't let you, if you select the images incorrectly.

                                        Yea I’ve kinda suspected this for a while, sometimes captchas feel a little sketchy, I’ll click a square that isn’t quite correct and it’ll pass just fine.

                                          Twitter makes me pass these tests every single day for “safety reasons” cause it doesn’t believe me that’s my profile cause I once changed my username

                                                      That's not true. Google's verification has to know in advance which square is what in order to verify your answers. So, you can't be feeding the AI with answers: they're already there.
