CAPTCHA stands for Completely Automated Public Turing test to tell Computers and Humans Apart. CAPTCHAs are basically used in signup process of email or any registration form, post comments, buy products, online forms or other online activities.
Almost every website now require its users to prove they are human by entering the combination of numbers and letters, which are often blurred to help prevent spam and differentiate between humans and bots.
A startup called Vicarious claims to have developed a piece of artificial intelligence software can break CAPTCHAs from different websites including Google and Paypal. San Francisco-based Vicarious developed the algorithm not for any evil purpose and not even to sell, said co-founder D. Scott Phoenix.
According to Scott Phoenix “We wanted to show we could take the first step toward a machine that works like a human brain, and that we are the best place in the world to do artificial intelligence research.”
This is Quite impressive example of Artificial Intelligence.
