• Description:

PASS is a large-scale image dataset that does not include any humans, human parts, or other personally identifiable information. It can be used for high-quality self-supervised pretraining while significantly reducing privacy concerns.

PASS contains 1,439,589 images without any labels sourced from YFCC-100M.

All images in this dataset are licenced under the CC-BY licence, as is the dataset itself. For YFCC-100M see
