NIT-W named Joga.

1. Excerpt from History of Mathematics by Howard Eves: “Aryabhatta called it the ardha-jya (half-chord) and jya-ardha(chord-half), and then abbreviated the term by simply using jya(chord). From jya the Arabs phonetically derived jiba, which, following the Arabic practice of omitting vowels was written as jb. Now jiba is a meaningless word in Arabic. Later writers who came across jb as an abbreviation changed it to jaib, which means ‘cove’ or ‘bay’ in Arabic. When the word was translated into Latin from Arabic, it was replaced by its Latin equivalent Y meaning a cove or a bay, from whence came our present word X.”. This was instrumental in the discovery of a very important branch of mathematics. Identify X.

Q. Moni Naor was the first person to theorize a list of ways to verify that a request comes from a human and not a bot. Primitive Xs seem to have been developed in 1997 by Andrei Broder, Martin Abadi, Krishna Bharat, and Mark Lillibridge to prevent bots from adding URLs to their search engine.In order to make the images resistant to OCR (Optical Character Recognition), the team simulated situations that scanner manuals claimed resulted in bad OCR. In 2000, Luis von Ahn and Manuel Blum coined the term 'X', improved and publicized the notion, which included any program that can distinguish humans from computers. They invented multiple examples of Xs, including the first Xs to be widely used, which were those adopted by Yahoo!.
