109 Participants

Welcome to CINIC-10 Image Classification Challenge

CINIC-10 is a drop-in replacement for CIFAR-10. It is compiled as a bench-marking dataset because CIFAR-10 can be too small/too easy and ImageNet is often too large/difficult. CINIC-10 fills this bench-marking gap. CINIC-10 has a total of 270,000 images equally split into three subsets: train, validate, and test. In each subset (90,000 images) there are ten classes (identical to CIFAR-10 classes). There are 9,000 images per class per subset.
