Open Dataset for ML Training: Diverse Human Faces

The Diverse Human Faces Dataset showcases a diverse set of humans with the camera focused on the head and shoulders, in multiple environments and camera angles. This dataset is therefore particularly suited for machine learning tasks like facial segmentation, matting / background removal and landmark estimation – among others.

Open Dataset
This data can be used to train...
Facial Segmentation
  • Variation over identities, facial expression, and confounds challenges models segmenting facial regions.
  • Granular sub segmentation maps includes 35 face regions such as “ear_left”, “eyelashes”, “eyelid”, “hair”
Matting/Background Removal
  • Variation in background, lighting, and hair styles produce mimics hard to segment real-world conditions.
  • Pixel-accurate alpha masks as ground truth.
Landmark Estimation
  • A high variation of camera perspectives and facial expressions enables different perspectives on the face in order to improve the landmark estimation.
  • 2D and 3D anatomical and contour landmarks available.
