+ - CAPTCHA Busted? Company Claims to Have Broken Protection System-> 1

Submitted by sciencehabit
sciencehabit (1205606) writes "A software company called Vicarious claims to have created a computer algorithm that can solve CAPTCHA with greater than 90% accuracy. If true, the advance would represent a major breakthrough in artificial intelligence. It would also mean that the internet will have to start looking for a new security system. The problem, however, is that Vicarious has provided little evidence for its claims, though some well-known scientists are behind the work."
