9 Well, they kinda have to be, the state of AI is increasing so much that
10 current captcha systems undoubtedly also develop their own adversarial
11 AI to try beat their own captcha.
13 I don't think we have the sort of power to develop this.
15 And the inherently low entropy of only having 80x23 with so few
16 (compared to full RGB) bits per pixel, this gives any would-be AI a
17 substantial leg up.
19 Using text distortion is amateur hour these days.
