In the world of computer programs, what is a CAPTCHA?
A program used to verify that data is being entered by a human, not a computer robot or another automated program. Generally seen at the end of a fill-in online form, it typically asks the user to decipher a series of visually distorted numbers and letters.

The Turing test, named for British scientist Alan Turing, is used to evaluate the intelligence level of machines.
