IdenProf dataset is a collection of images of identifiable professionals. It is been collected to enable the development of AI systems that can serve by identifying people and the nature of their job by simply looking at an image, just like humans can do.

IdenProf is a dataset containing images of identifiable professionals.

IdenProf is a dataset of identifiable professionals, collected in order to ensure that machine learning systems can be trained to recognize professionals by their mode of dressing as humans can observe. This is part of our mission to train machine learning systems to perceive, understand and act accordingly in any environment they are deployed.

This is the first release of the IdenProf dataset. It contains 11,000 images that span cover 10 categories of professions. The professions included in this release are:

  • Chef
  • Doctor
  • Engineer
  • Farmer
  • Firefighter
  • Judge
  • Mechanic
  • Pilot
  • Police
  • Waiter

There are 1,100 images for each category, with 900 images for trainings and 200 images for testing . We are working on adding more categories in the future and will continue to improve the dataset.


The IdenProf dataset is provided for download in the release section of this repository. You can download the dataset via this link .

We have also provided a python codebase to download the images, train ResNet50 on the images and perform prediction using a pretrained model (also using ResNet50) provided in the release section of this repository. The python codebase is contained in the file and the model class labels for prediction is also provided the idenprof_model_class.json. The pretrained ResNet50 model is available for download via this link. This pre-trained model was trained over 61 epochs only, but it achieved 79% accuracy on 2000 test images. You can see the prediction results on new images that were not part of the dataset in the Prediction Results section below. More experiments will enhance the accuracy of the model.
Running the experiment or prediction requires that you have Tensorflow, Numpy and Keras installed.


For transparency and accountability on the collection and content of the IdenProf dataset, we have provided a comprehensive datasheet on the dataset . The datasheet is based on the blueprint provided in the 2018 paper publication , "Datasheets for Datasets" by Timnit. et al. The datasheet is available via this link.
