What is the REAL purpose behind Captcha?
Is it really a nefarious scheme to teach computers about the real world to make it easier for AI to finally take over?
"While used mostly for security reasons, CAPTCHAs also serve as a benchmark task for artificial intelligence technologies. According to an article by Ahn, Blum and Langford, "any program that passes the tests generated by a CAPTCHA can be used to solve a hard unsolved AI problem."
They argue that the advantages of using hard AI problems as a means for security are twofold. Either the problem goes unsolved and there remains a reliable method for distinguishing humans from computers, or the problem is solved and a difficult AI problem is resolved along with it. In the case of image and text based CAPTCHAs, if an AI were capable of accurately completing the task without exploiting flaws in a particular CAPTCHA design, then it would have solved the problem of developing an AI that is capable of complex object recognition in scenes."

It's to give Google free human slave labor to help create the overlord neural network that will be used in their self driving cars, that is why everything is crosswalks and traffic lights. Then once they are done with that, they will have different things like dollar bills to teach the AI which bill it needs to accept in order to cancel the execution sequence on innocent people. This is the beginning of the events of 1984 becoming reality

probably to prevent robots and ai from posting on networks
