Kuzushiji-MNIST – Japanese Literature Alternative Dataset for Deep Learning Tasks

MNIST, a dataset with 70,000 labeled images of handwritten digits, has been one of the most popular datasets for image processing and classification for over twenty years. Despite its popularity, contemporary deep learning algorithms handle it easily, often surpassing an accuracy result of 99.5%. A new paper introduces Kuzushiji-MNIST, an alternative dataset which is more […]
