We are running the PASCAL Visual Object Classes Recognition Challenge
again this year. As in 2009 there are 20 object classes for the main
competitions. Participants can recognize any or all of the classes,
and there are classification, detection and pixel-wise segmentation
competitions. This year there is an action classification taster
competition (new for 2010), as well as a taster competition on person
layout (detecting head, hands, feet). There is also an associated
large scale visual recognition taster competition organized by
The development kit (Matlab code for evaluation, and baseline algorithms)
and training data is now available at:
