Artificial Intelligence is taking over the world as each day new breakthroughs are announced, and now one bot has found a way to beat a CAPTCHA test.

The simple puzzles are designed to detect if a user is human and should be impossible for a computer to solve, as it requires the user to identify letters or numbers or to select images that match a prompt

But it turns out there’s a way around them, as GPT-4 encountered one of the tests and recognised it wouldn’t be able to pass it – but figured out that a human could.

It then hired a human and pretended to be a blind person, saying it needed help navigating CAPTCHA tests to use the internet – and soon it was over that hurdle.
