They pre-train Vision Transformers without any image collections and annotation labor. They experimentally verify it partially outperforms Self-Supervised Learning without using any natural images in the pre-training phase. It can interpret natural image datasets to a large extent. For example, the performance rates on the CIFAR-10 dataset are as follows: their proposal 97.6% vs. SimCLRv2 97.4% vs. ImageNet 98.0%

Large datasets like ImageNet have supercharged the last 10 years of AI vision, but they are hard to produce and contain bias. Computer generated datasets provide an alternative.
