171 Participants


One of the most excellent things concerning deep learning is that it assists you to match the relationship between two entities e.g., x and y and enables you to do magnificent things like image classification into different categories. Your task is to make a Solution to classify the images in the dateset belonging to their respective categories.

The Dataset

The Fashion-MNIST serves as a direct drop-in replacement for the original MNIST dataset for benchmarking machine learning algorithms. It shares the same image size and structure of training and testing splits. It consists of a training set of 60,000 examples and a test set of 10,000 examples. Each example is a 28x28 grayscale image, associated with a label from 10 classes.

Label Description

  • 0 T-shirt/top
  • 1 Trouser
  • 2 Pullover
  • 3 Dress
  • 4 Coat
  • 5 Sandal
  • 6 Shirt
  • 7 Sneaker
  • 8 Bag
  • 9 Ankle boot

The dateset includes two training files and one test directory namely:

  • train-images-idx3-ubyte.gz
  • train-labels-idx1-ubyte.gz
  • test directory

which contains training images and training labels respectively. The test directory consists of 10,000 28x28 grayscale images and have to be classified into 10 classes.

The final submission must include:

output.csv (single file having results for "test" directory which contains 10,000 images )

For grading, "output.csv" file must be uploaded in the submission section of this challenge.

The first row should correspond to the column names "filename" and "label".

Sample output.csv:
