AI bots are now better than humans at decoding CAPTCHAs

CAPTCHA technology, which requires users to solve puzzles to prove they’re human, may soon be rendered obsolete by advancements in artificial intelligence. Google replaced CAPTCHA with a more advanced tool called reCAPTCHA in 2019, but AI bots are now beating even this more sophisticated system. In a recent study, AI bots showed greater accuracy and speed than humans in solving CAPTCHA puzzles, creating the impression that humans are more like robots. While CAPTCHAs are disliked by users, their value may still depend on the importance of the next step in the user’s experience and the level of security needed.
