reCAPTCHA was created 9 years ago as an anti-spam tool which also crowdsourced books digitization. reCAPTCHA has been pushing the boundary of research on OCR that today machines can read text much better than human. With the re-imagined ""No CAPTCHA"" reCAPTCHA, it pivots into the natural image recognition space and empowers deep learning system from millions of brilliant human minds everyday. Ying Liu from Google reCAPTCHA shares the story of re-inventing reCAPTCHA and how it keeps improving humanity today, tomorrow, and 20 years from now.
