The "Noisy Imperfect Partial Symbolic Sketches" (NIPSS) dataset provides symbolic sketches generated from the texture extraction method described in [1] when the inputs are associated with, either Imagenet animals [2] that have been preprocessed by [3], or the CelebAMask-HQ person faces described in [4].

Any sketch is an image containing a multichannel (artificial color) binary sequence of information, where artificial colors have consisted in concatenating the results of different regularizers from [1].
