A new service “Invisible reCAPTCHA” was launched by Google to make the Internet a happier place.
The Search engine giant Google launched an “Invisible reCAPTCHA,” a service that works in the background as a gatekeeper without a human having to do anything.
“Powering these advances is a combination of advanced risk analysis and machine learning that adapt to new and emerging threats,” the company said in a video. Whether a website makes use of the new service, invisible reCAPTCHA or just the box-checking version, Google says that if they think something’s suspicious, a user will still face more challenges.
The chief technology officer, Shuman Ghosemajumder at Shape Security in Mountain View, Calif and a former employee of Google said that the search giant is interested in making the internet a little more frictionless.
“The new service is one of the most popular, if not the most popular, CAPTCHA mechanism on the internet today,” he says of the free service. “Google in general and this is certainly a philosophy that we obeyed to when I was there—believed that anything that is good for the Internet, is good for Google.”
Making the service invisible, he says, “to enhance the user experience across the web.”
The new reCAPTCHA service mainly works on the factors like how a user moves the mouse around, Ghosemajumder says.
He also added that “Google also has a history of information that’s associated with that specific Internet Protocol address, “pointing out that if a user is also logged into a Google account, the company will know even more about it whether it was a normal activity or not.
Ghosemajumder says unnaturally distorted text you’ve no doubt had to fill more times than you’d care to remember? Remarkably, Google said that by 2014, but the computers were far better at recognizing the trickiest distorted text from a CAPTCHA than a human. “It was the worst of all possible worlds, in terms of most humans experiencing something that was very annoying, and most bots not encountering any real friction at all, if they were sufficiently advanced,”
He says, the latest service “creates a new sort of challenge that very advanced bots can still get around, but introduces a lot less friction to the authorized human.”
