New Developments in Captchas
In the never-ending arms race between systems to prove that you’re a human and computers that can fake it, here’s a captcha that tests whether you have human feelings.
Instead of your run-of-the-mill alphanumeric gibberish, or random selection of words, the Civil Rights Captcha presents you with a short blurb about a Civil Rights violation and asks you how you feel about it. Ostensibly robots (and trolls) won’t make it through because they’ll remark that a human rights activist’s murder makes them feel “aroused” instead of “upset.” And bots will still have to make it past standard Captcha hurdles before they can even pick one of the choices.
The easy way to attack this system is to create a library with all the correct answers.
How soon before Deckard has to come to our house to administer a test?
