Is it allowed to train using Imagenet Database?

Hi, I’d like to ask if it is allowed to train the model using Imagenet Database.

While I know that it is allowed to use imagenet pretrained models which are under OSS license,

I’m not sure about training directly using Imagenet Database, since the Imagenet Usage Term

says that researchers shall use the database only for non-commercial research and educational


Thank you.

Hi @separate - Thanks for the question.

Participants will need to determine whether their use of a proposed external data set for the competition is permitted under the data set’s license. External data requirements are detailed in the Official Rules and any licenses need to permit use for the purposes of participating in a prize competition. Potential winners will be asked to certify that any external data they used complies with the requirements in the competition official rules.
