Automated collection of high quality 3D avatar images
CAPTCHAs are security tests designed to allow users to easily identify themselves as humans; however, as research shows (Bursztein et al. 2010) these test aren't necessarily easy for humans to pass. As a result a new test, which requests users to identify images of real humans among those of 3D virtual avatars, is proposed that would create a potentially unsolvable obstacle for computers and a quick, easy verification for humans. In order to provide test cases for this new test, an automated bot is used to collect images of 3D avatars from Evolver.com.
