Over the past few years, Google has used various methods and tricks to check if you are a human or a bot. It had used the CAPTCHA (Completely Automated Public Turing test to tell Computers and Humans Apart) test previously ( known as reCAPTCHA). This test required you to transcribe distorted words, confirm Street View addresses or simply just tick a box.
Now the good news is that soon you won’t have to work so hard to prove that you are just a human. Google is making the whole process invisible. So no hard work for you.
Google has made use of various machine learning and advanced risk analysis to come up with a system that won’t need a dedicated interactive approach to check whether the user is a human or a bot. That means that when you will arrive on a web page, the controls will disappear and the relevant content will be displayed.
However, if you trip the search engines risk analysis algorithm for some reason, you will have to solve one of Googles quick puzzle to prove your identity.
While the system is invisible that won’t obviously mean it is non existent. It will still need details like IP address and movement of your mouse. Google says its technology will “actively consider a user’s engagement with the CAPTCHA — before, during, and after — to determine whether that user is a human.” This basically translate to no more transcription. It offered a human balance to Google’s optical character recognition, but you may now find what you were looking for a lot quicker.
