CelebA Dataset

Learn about the CelebA Dataset.

A real challenge for training GANs is ensuring there is enough training data. We can’t train a GAN to generate human faces with just tens, or even hundreds of faces. Luckily, there is a popular dataset we can use called the CelebA dataset, which contains 202,599 photos of celebrity faces, aligned and cropped so the eyes and mouth are roughly centered.

You can read more about the CelebA dataset and see sample images on its home site here.

⚠️ The dataset is intended to be used only for non-commercial research and educational use.

We won’t reproduce any images directly from the database itself and only show GAN generated images. This is a good excuse to draw cartoon faces and show those instead!
