The new captcha format is so annoying that I would take a sea of bots over having to deal the stupid thing anymore. I have enough hatred and rage for modern day captchas that I could probably take down a bear or a moose with my bare hands and even that is an understatement from hell.

If the AI is getting trained by the captcha, how does the catpcha know I clicked on the wrong image? If it knows already, there's absolutely no point in using me to train the captcha.

@Roxor128 so we should be able to see one that is wrong at some point?

@y0y4y0 The AI training is separate from the CAPTCHA. The CAPTCHA is just creating a labelled set of data to use in the AI training. Each image will be shown to thousands of users. It probably won't start marking it wrong until there's some consensus, such as 60% of a couple of hundred saying that square 3 on line 2 contains a traffic light. That might by why you typically end up getting several in a row. It might not have enough data about that first image to say whether it's wrong or not, but a couple more and it might hit something that's gotten enough consensus from prior showings that it can say pass or fail. Actually, I wouldn't be surprised if the data set that gets used has the percentages of humans that thought each square contained a given feature. A bike stopped in front of the pole for a traffic light might have a square labelled "40% traffic light, 95% bicycle" after being shown to users asked to find traffic lights and bicycles. Valve (the makers of Half-Life and Steam) uses a system of showing short sequences of gameplay surrounding shots made by suspected cheaters in Counter Strike to a bunch of human judges and if there's a 200:1 consensus of guilty, the user gets banned. They started the system with user-reported matches after playing with a suspected cheat, and while that did catch some cheats, it wasn't that great. Then they tried training a machine-learning system on the verdicts, and instead of having the AI as a judge, they put it in the role of an investigator and fed it lots of matches and any it was confident about got handed to human judges. The conviction rate went up and complaints on the forums about cheaters went down.

@Roxor128 then, where's the AI training? If the first user who sees that image gets it wrong, does it mean the next users need to get it wrong as well?

Roxor128

If the CAPTCHA thinks you got it wrong, it's either due to pre-labelled data used to get things going, or your answer disagreeing with lots of other users who've had that same image.

I've had where it continuously rejects my selections to the point where I go somewhere else after sending the website admins some complaints about the captchas not working. I also hated those word ones as I would get words that were so garbled I had no idea what they were or I would get non English words that had symbols above them. The worst are the audio captchas with so much static I had no clue what was being said. I also don't like the ad captchas where you have to watch an ad to get the phrase needed to get through. The worst ones are where you have to keep clicking certain images until none are showing the item. They take way too long.

I hate when they are wrong.... There's been more often when it asks for something like a cross walk an I can tell it's not a cross walk, but the lines have a kind of "cross walk" pattern.... I hope they filter that stuff out.... I'm not sure how they could if they're already forcing me to choose that to get the capture right.

Easy answer: make the catchpa hard enough that only an AI would get it right. You're human if your answer is wrong. This will train AI to give the wrong answer, thus giving humans the chance to start giving the right answers again.

Nothing like the CAPTCHA routines Microsoft was using a few months ago which at first appeared fun. Find the pics of dice that match a certain sum. Ok, not a problem. As an old paper and dice RPG'er, that was my domain. But do so 6 times in a row, within a certain time limit and the pictures are more and more blurry??? I could not pass those tests and thus I could not buy their overpriced software. Not such a bad thing if you think of the money I saved. But the amount of swear words that spilled out of my mouth when trying to prove I was not a bot? Stupid bleep bleep Microsoft!

If I see a captcha now I just close the website, like DRM they're punishing the legitimate user for a small percentage of bad actors. Botting hasn't been stopped by adding these (it would have solved the scalping issue if true) and it is possible to get past these programs, in fact a University created a program called GAN (general adversary network) that can quickly solve captachas so there's absolutley no excuse in the 'it stops bots' arguement. What we're actually doing is giving AI companies cost savings by getting us to train their AI networks and paying websites to include them as part of their 'anti bot protection' so the can profit off our data. Just this time it's data for AI training instead of our private browsing info... both will still be bought and sold though without us receiving a penny even though we're the one's generating the profitable data.

Captchas are the antibiotics of the digitale age. The more we use it, the more they become useless until we end up with a super-virus/AI that beats them all. Then we are in a world where a server can no longer tell if a request comes from a real person. Which can be the end for many free services and some open information.

The worst things about the newer picture ones are definitely the crappy, poor resolution and sizes which makes it a struggle for even people with super vision (who cares about accessibility, right?), and the complete lack of localisation.
