Laboratori de captcha

by EINA University School of Design and Art of Barcelona

CAPTCHA is a challenge-response test that separates us, humans, from bots. 200+ millions of them are done daily to keep the internet safe. The next generation of bots will be AI-powered and will make current captchas obsolete. To find new solutions we need to ask ourselves what bots can not process. Now and in the future.

Laboratori de Captcha is an exploration of how captcha can evolve using our human skills as the foundation to create better systems that are both safe and improve the current user experience. Focusing on what allows us to interpret and interact with our environment in a unique way: our cognition, and physiology. The objective is to find new solutions that can help humans in this long fight against bots that looms ahead.

"Laboratori de Captcha blew my mind. Both conceptually and visually." - Rogier Bikker for the Art Directors Club Netherlands
