Human Determination:
The Methods and Ethics of Automated Turing Tests

You're familiar with CAPTCHAs getting in your way. But why are they such a ubiquitous security measure to begin with? Why are there different implementations, and which problem are they attempting to solve? During this talk you'll learn how these "Human Interactive Proofs" came to be, how they're still evolving, and why they are a bad solution to the wrong problem.
