class Cifar100 ( data_file=None, mode='train', transform=None, download=True, backend=None ) [source]

Implementation of Cifar-100 dataset, which has 100 categories.

  • data_file (str) – path to data file, can be set None if download is True. Default None, default data path: ~/.cache/paddle/dataset/cifar

  • mode (str) – ‘train’, ‘test’ mode. Default ‘train’.

  • transform (callable) – transform to perform on image, None for no transform.

  • download (bool) – download dataset automatically if data_file is None. Default True

  • backend (str, optional) – Specifies which type of image to be returned: PIL.Image or numpy.ndarray. Should be one of {‘pil’, ‘cv2’}. If this option is not set, will get backend from paddle.vsion.get_image_backend , default backend is ‘pil’. Default: None.
