abstract= {==Overview
256 Object Categories + Clutter
At least 80 images per category
30608 images instead of 9144

==Caltech-101: Drawbacks
Smallest category size is 31 images:
Too easy?
    left-right aligned
    Rotation artifacts
    Soon will saturate performance

==Caltech-256 : New Features  
Smallest category size now 80 images
    Not left-right aligned
    No artifacts
    Performance is halved
    More categories
New and larger clutter category

==Collection Procedure
Similar to Caltech-101 (Li, Fergus, Perona)

Four sorters rate the images
1 good: a clear example
2 bad: confusing, occluded, cluttered, or artistic
3 not applicable: object category not present

92,652 Images from Google and Picsearch
    32.1% were rated good and kept

Some images borrowed from 29 of the largest Caltech-101 categories (green)

Rob Fergus and Fei Fei Li, Pierre Moreels for code and procedures developed for the Caltech-101 image set
Marco Ranzato and Claudio Fanti for miscellaneous help
Sorters: Lis Fano, Nick Lo, Julie May, Weiyu Xu for making this image set possible with their hard work
