Downloading the imdb small dataset


(lars klein) #1

I’m reading these docs: http://docs.fast.ai/text.html

They say that you have prepared a small sample of the imdb dataset.
This dataset seems to be used here, too: https://github.com/fastai/fastai/blob/master/examples/text.ipynb

But I haven’t found a download link to it.
So far I’ve only seen the download in lesson 4: https://github.com/fastai/fastai/blob/master/courses/dl1/lesson4-imdb.ipynb
and this upload to kaggle: https://www.kaggle.com/orgesleka/imdbmovies
But they are both a larger collection of samples.

Where can I download your small version of imdb ?

Hi Marc,

that’s not the dataset I meant, but your link points to the right location:

Thanks !
