The 'Do not draw a penis?' Dataset
In 2018 Google open-sourced the Quickdraw data set. “The world's largest doodling data set”. The set consists of 345 categories and over 15 million drawings. For obvious reasons the data set was missing a few specific categories that people seem to enjoy drawing. This made us at Moniker think about the moral reality big tech companies are imposing on our global community and that most people willingly accept this. Therefore we decided to publish an appendix to the Google Quickdraw data set.
So far we have collected 10K doodles formatted the same way as Google's dataset. We are happy to announce you can download them here. We have collected these using initially using Amazon's Mechanical Turk, which was drudgingly audited by the staff here at Moniker.
Following the release of the Do Not Draw a Penis project we will also update the dataset with user contributed doodles... The Do Not Draw a Penis project functions as an agent to collect inappropriate doodles from people who are not willing to stay within the moral guidelines set by our social network providers.
Similar to Google's QuickDraw dataset, we offer the data in the following forms. More information on how to interpret this data can be found here.
