A tool to collect public images from Facebook and create an image dataset for learning about computer vision applications like gender recognition, and face detection
During an AI class in college, I was learning about computer vision applications such as face detection and gender recognition. I implemented the respective algorithms and wanted to try them out on a new dataset.
Thus I created this tool to collect the public images from Facebook and create a dataset to apply the newly learned vision algorithms. I hope that the tool would be helpful to learners looking for image datasets.
$ python facegrab.py <size of dataset>
This will create an image dataset of desired size in the same directory under the facegrab folder.
