# MNIST Database Interface for Bob¶

This package is part of the signal-processing and machine learning toolbox Bob. The MNIST database is a database of handwritten digits, which consists of a training set of 60,000 examples, and a test set of 10,000 examples. It was made available by Yann Le Cun and Corinna Cortes. The data was originally extracted from a larger set made available by NIST, before being size-normalized and centered in a fixed-size image (28x28 pixels).
