Google Captcha

google acquires recaptcha

But there’s a twist – the words in many of the CAPTCHAs provided by reCAPTCHA come from scanned archival newspapers and old books. Computers find it hard to recognize these words because the ink and paper have degraded over time, but by typing them in as a CAPTCHA, crowds teach computers to read the scanned text.

oh, Google kauft reCAPTCHA.
