shap.datasets.imagenet50(display=False, resolution=224)

This is a set of 50 images representative of ImageNet images.

This dataset was collected by randomly finding a working ImageNet link and then pasting the original ImageNet image into Google image search restricted to images licensed for reuse. A similar image (now with rights to reuse) was downloaded as a rough replacment for the original ImageNet image. The point is to have a random sample of ImageNet for use as a background distribution for explaining models trained on ImageNet data.

Note that because the images are only rough replacements the labels might no longer be correct.
