MNIST Dataset is considered to be the Hello world example for the Deep Learning tasks. It contains handwritten digits examples and corresponding labels. The classification task that can be applied to the dataset is more complex than binary classification we've seen so far in the course.


You've completed MNIST Dataset scenario.

You've learned how to:

  • Load the data
  • Use training, test and validation splits
  • Work with batches

Don’t stop now! The next scenario will only take about 10 minutes to complete.

Step 1 of 4


This scenario is an introduction to the MNIST dataset. Later we will be solving the classification task and try to recognise the actual digit from its handwritten representation.

MNIST Dataset

Apart from images, the dataset contains actual labels, so that the machine learning task can be supervised.

To start using Python use the following command:
