Most of us are familiar with the “I’m not a robot” reCAPTCHA we have to face while entering a barred website. This spam protection tech created by Google has been used to distinguish between human and robot. However, a robot passed the “I’m not a robot” test and made it count as a human.
In the video, uploaded by Matt Unsworth, you can see a robotic arm taking a test called Completely Automated Public Turing test to tell Computers and Humans Apart (CAPTCHA). Armed with a stylus, the sneaky robot lowered itself to the keypad and did the unthinkable. It ticked a box saying “I’m not a robot” and gained access to the website. Albeit it took a few moments for the robot to pinpoint the right spot, it could finally convince Google’s CAPTCHA that it’s not a robot.
Deal with it
To celebrate its victory, the robot dramatically dropped the stylus and looked at the camera, when a pair of superimposed sunglasses fell on its eyes with a caption saying “Deal with it.”
If you’re extremely horrified, let me clarify you it’s nothing related to artificial intelligence. This is basically a troll and the robot is controlled by a human. However, this video is a warning that with the rapid growth of artificial intelligence, the outcome could be anything.
