Use Case

Computer Vision


Discover Afro-MNIST, the innovative dataset tailored for machine learning with African numeral systems including Ge`ez, Vai, Osmanya, and N'Ko.

About the Dataset:

Introducing our dataset collection of synthetic datasets crafted in the style for four numeral systems used in the Asiatic and Niger-Congo languages: Ge`ez (Ethiopic), Vai, Osmanya, and N’Ko. Designed to seamlessly substitute the traditional dataset, our aims to expand machine learning tools and education to include underrepresented numeral systems. We envision the development of MNIST-style datasets for additional numeral systems, promoting broader participation and representation in the global research community.

Structure and Composition of Afro-MNIST

The dataset maintains the same structure as the original dataset, ensuring ease of integration and use. It consists of 60,000 training images and 10,000 test images. Each image is a 28×28 grayscale picture of a handwritten digit from 0 to 9, labeled accordingly.

Applications and Use Cases

The Afro-MNIST dataset is ideal for academic research, AI training, and commercial applications that require high precision in handwritten digit recognition. It is particularly valuable for projects aiming to enhance the inclusivity and accuracy of their digit recognition algorithms.

Improving AI Robustness with Afro-MNIST

Using the dataset, developers can improve the robustness and accuracy of their digit recognition algorithms. This dataset ensures that AI models can perform well across different handwriting styles, making them more inclusive and effective.

Addressing Bias in Machine Learning Models
