A simple synthetic dataset and baseline model for visual counting. The task is to count the number of even digits given a 100x100 image, each with up to 5 randomly chosen MNIST digits.
We use rejection sampling to ensure digits are separated by at least 28 pixels. Reproduced with details from Learning to count with deep object features.

NOTE: This is not a competitive dataset. It’s intended to be simple place to start for validating ideas in counting models.
Tool to compute the effective receptive field of a convolutional layer.
We created a lightweight reverse image search and wrote up the details in a three part series for Codementor.
