The 20BN-JESTER dataset is a large collection of densely-labeled video clips that show humans performing pre-definded hand gestures in front of a laptop camera or webcam. The dataset was created by a large number of crowd workers. It allows for training robust machine learning models to recognize human hand gestures. It is available free of charge for academic research. Commercial licenses are available upon request.
A paper with supplementary material will be published soon on arXiv.
The video data is provided as one large TGZ archive, split into parts of 1 GB max. The total download size is 22.8 GB. The archive contains directories numbered from 1 to 148092. Each directory corresponds to one video and contains JPG images with height 100px and variable width. The JPG images were extracted from the orginal videos at 12 frames per seconds. The filenames of the JPGs start at 00001.jpg. The number of JPGs varies as the length of the original videos varies.
This dataset is made available under the Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 International license CC BY-NC-ND 4.0. It can be used for academic research free of charge. If you seek to use the data for commercial purposes please contact us.

If you have been successful in creating a model based on the training set and it performs well on the validation set, we encourage you to run your model on the test set (which is published without any class labels, as you might have noticed). Please prepare a .csv file with the video's id in the first column and your predicted class label (as a string matching the wording used in the training and validation sets). As a separator, please use a semicolon. You can then upload your .csv file here (user login required) to be ranked in the leaderboard and to benchmark your approach against that of other machine learners. We are looking forward to your submission.
