Recognisability of Avatars | 15/04/21
This document informs the user of the use-premise of their image in order to determine a level of recognisability in the avatars to be created for Mesmerise’s VR Gatherings Application.
In order to determine how recognisable a user is in the Gatherings app, the Data Team need to distribute the users headshot image across different avatar types. In order to reduce bias as a result of familiarity, those judging the recognisability of the avatar and its corresponding image cannot already know the user. Thus the requirement is for the use of the signees image and their avatar, and their permission to distribute it in a Zooniverse environment for members of the public to assess the recognisability of the avatar. The images and avatar provided will be published (and available to see) on the Zooniverse environment until an adequate number of results are acquired, and there is a clear distinction in which avatar is the most recognisable. After the result is obtained, the images and avatar will be removed from the environment.
