Publicly available datasets

Large real-world datasets are useful to pose bigger challenges to studied methods and are more likely to cover a variety of distributions and patterns. While the most interesting datasets are not available to the public due to commercial interests and ethical considerations, the following list aims to compile some large publicly available datasets that are approriate for research purposes.
