ICDAR 2013 - Gender Identification Competition Dataset (GenderIdentifify2013)
Genders of all writers
The genders of the writers of the training set are in train_answers.csv and those of the writers of the test set are in the test_answers.csv
Important Note: This competition has been hosted in kaggle. This website allows participants to see how well
each of their submissions performs on a part of the test set called the public test set (37% for this competition).
However, only the remaining part of the test set (called the private test set) counts towards the final standing. Therefore,
the ranking on the public test set is not necessarily similar to that of the private test set. This is mainly due to participants overfitting to the public test set. In the test_answers.csv there is a column called Usage, this column indicates for each row whether it is used in the public or private leaderboard. Consequently, in order to have results which are comparable with those of the competition, the public test set must be used as a validation set and the private test set as a final test set.
