What is LFW Funneled Dataset?

LFW Funneled Dataset is a face photo database developed to explore the problem of unlimited face recognition. LFW Funneled Dataset has the same images present in the original Labeled Faces in the Wild dataset, however, the images in this dataset are aligned using commercial face alignment software.

Downloading LFW Funneled Dataset in Python

Instead of downloading the LFW Funneled Dataset in Python, you can effortlessly load it in Python via our open-source package Hub with just one line of code.

Load LFW Funneled Dataset in Python

import hub
ds = hub.load('hub://activeloop/lfw-funneled')

LFW Funneled Dataset Structure

LFW Funneled Data Fields

  • images: tensor containing images of the people
  • names: tensor containing the names of the people depicted in the images

How to use LFW Funneled Dataset with PyTorch and TensorFlow in Python

Train a model on LFW Funneled 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 LFW Funneled Dataset with TensorFlow in Python

dataloader = ds.tensorflow()

LFW Funneled Dataset Creation

Dataset Collection and Normalization Information

In this database, there are over 13,000 face images collected from the Internet. Each face was signed with the name of the person depicted in the image. 1680 of the people pictured have two or more different photos in the dataset. A new method for aligning the images is used in the LFW Funneled Dataset, using poorly aligned examples of unlabeled classes
