I’ve been working on collecting some handwritten digits written by people that don’t write like Americans apparently do: their 1 looks like a single vertical stroke and their 7 has no short, horizontal stroke in the middle. Thus, I wondered how useful a neural network trained on handwritten digits written by Americans would be to me here in Switzerland. And so I started assembling a dataset of handwritten digits!

Now that we have more than 10,000 digits, I think we’re ready accept contributions from anywhere!

If you’re interested in handwritten digits and want an alternative to the MNIST dataset, check it out: Numbers, dedicated to the Public Domain.
