11k Hands Dataset

What is 11k Hands Dataset?

The dataset contains detailed ground-truth information for the recognition of gender and biometric identification of hand images.
The human hand has specific traits that might disclose information about gender. Furthermore, one of the key biometric features used to identify a person is the hand. This paper presents a huge collection of human hand photos (both dorsal and palmar sides) with rich ground-truth information for gender recognition and biometric identification in this paper. A convolutional neural network (CNN) may be efficiently trained for the gender recognition task using this dataset.
There are 11,076 hand images (1600 x 1200 pixels) in the 11k Hands dataset, which are of 190 subjects whose ages range from 18 to 75 years old.

  • aspect_of_hand: class value to distinguish between palmer or dorsal hand
  • nail_polish: class label to identify the presence of nail polish in hand
  • irregularities: class label to identify the presence of irregularities in hand
  • skin_color: class label to represent 'fair', 'dark', 'medium', 'very fair' classes
  • accessories: label to identify the presence of any accessory on the hand

11k Hands Data Splits

  • A single split consists of 11,076 hand images (1600 x 1200 pixels) of 190 subjects.

How to use 11k Hands Dataset with PyTorch and TensorFlow in Python

Train a model on 11k Hands dataset with PyTorch in Python

Let's use Hub's built-in PyTorch one-line dataloader to connect the data to the compute:
dataloader = ds.pytorch(num_workers=0, batch_size=4, shuffle=False)

Train a model on 11k Hands dataset with TensorFlow in Python

dataloader = ds.tensorflow()
