• Description:

A re-labeled version of CIFAR-100 with real human annotation errors. For every pair (image, label) in the original CIFAR-100 train set, it provides an additional label given by a real human annotator.

Then convert 'CIFAR-100_human_ordered.npy' into a CSV file 'CIFAR-100_human_annotations.csv'. This can be done with the following code:

import numpy as np
from tensorflow_datasets.core.utils.lazy_imports_utils import pandas as pd
from tensorflow_datasets.core.utils.lazy_imports_utils import tensorflow as tf

human_labels_np_path = '<local_path>/CIFAR-100_human_ordered.npy'
human_labels_csv_path = '<local_path>/CIFAR-100_human_annotations.csv'

with, "rb") as f:
  human_annotations = np.load(f, allow_pickle=True)

df = pd.DataFrame(human_annotations[()])

with, "w") as f:
  df.to_csv(f, index=False)
Split Examples
'test' 10,000
'train' 50,000
