Our Mission

The Common Visual Data Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization with a mission to enable open community-driven research in computer vision through the creation of academic datasets and corresponding competitions. The availability of high-quality labeled data is essential for enabling and evaluating state-of-the-art academic research. The competitions sponsored by the foundation, including the COCO Detection, Keypoint, and Stuff challenges help the community monitor its progress and focus research efforts on core computer vision problems. In addition to the datasets and competitions hosted by the foundation, the tools used in their creation are open-sourced to aid data related research across the community.
