To the RQTF

I can't see it on the minutes of our last RQTF teleconference, but at the very end I mentioned I'd progress as an action item a literature review of Topic 3 - CAPTCHA.

I've now completed a first run which would be good to share .  A few notes about what I've put together:

         I've found 47 references relating to the specific areas of the work plan

         I've focused on both journal articles and recent dissertations in light of the comment mentioned in the last teleconference about a concern that work can be outdated by the time it is published.  Some of the dissertations are published in 2016 and contain some really interesting developments

         In terms of the work plan categories, about  of the references are based on innovations relating to machine learning, and the remaining are about CAPTCHAs in relation specifically to mobile devices.

         In regards to the CAPTCHA advisory note all the references found are applicable in some way, but I'm happy to do more digging on this if there are some specific things relating to the note that I can use as a basis for the research

         Janina also mentioned on the teleconference what I thought was 'dual factor', apologies if I misheard as I couldn't' find anything relating to that   If I could get more information I'm happy to continue searching

         The data currently sits in an EndNote library with author, title, abstract and other various reference details including a note by me as to which of the work plan categories the reference falls into.  There's also a few common authors which might be helpful in tracking down people relevant to the group.

         I appreciate the data's probably not helpful in EndNote but I can export it to just about anything.    Due to being visually impaired transferring data into a readable wiki takes a very long time and I've never done it for W3C from scratch, so if there's someone who would be willing to take either my EndNote library as is or in a converted format such as a text file and put it on an appropriate wiki I'd be very grateful!  If not I might need a crash-course in how to start a W3C wiki resource from scratch.

Thanks everyone,
