Introduced by Ren et al. in Meta-Learning for Semi-Supervised Few-Shot Classification

The tieredImageNet dataset is a larger subset of ILSVRC-12 with 608 classes (779,165 images) grouped into 34 higher-level nodes in the ImageNet human-curated hierarchy. This set of nodes is partitioned into 20, 6, and 8 disjoint sets of training, validation, and testing nodes, and the corresponding classes form the respective meta-sets. As argued in Ren et al. (2018), this split near the root of the ImageNet hierarchy results in a more challenging, yet realistic regime with test classes that are less similar to training classes.
