Hi Ajay,

> Well, google has come up with an innovative way by using artificial intelligence and machine learning to make captcha usable by everyone, and they call it Google re-captcha , which personaly I feel is by far the easiest and accessible way to differentiate between humans and bots. Yu just need to check the checkbox that says 'I am not a robot', and you are good to go. The best part is that it is free to use.

That's not really correct. Google *bought* recaptcha, and it does something different, which is now *part of* Google's recaptcha service.

The basis for a "tick the box" experience, which some users get from Google's current implementation, is that their systems have tracked you and collected enough information about you to convince the machine learning that you're clearly a human.

Otherwise you will face the standard recaptcha - which is basically a normal captcha, the smart bit being that Google uses your answers to solve its problems. It isn't completely accessible. It has a few different formats to try and give you something accessible, which is better than dreadful.
