Researchers at the Chinese University of Hong Kong have published the CelebFaces Attributes Dataset (CelebA), a heavily annotated data set of 202,599 images of 10,177 celebrities’ faces they compiled to spur computer vision research. The researchers annotated each image with 40 binary attributes, such as “wearing hat,” “oval face,” and “mustache,” so that facial recognition and detection algorithms can learn to identify facial attributes in unfamiliar images.
