Captchas and Online Games

This is a pretty long video, but it's still worth the time to watch. It discusses these issues, and more.

  • What is a Captcha, and why is it not the ultimate protection against automated attacks?
  • Why do I see a Captcha sometimes, when I'm looking at pictures?
  • Why are there so many free online games?
  • How does Google Images get their pictures labeled so accurately?
