I think itโ€™s Google drive where you will upload and with the help of collab you will access those data . Please correct me in case Iโ€™m wrong

You can indeed load data from Drive, I used the snippet in this blog post


I think the most easiest way to download a dataset is using the command !wget. You only need to give the url as a parameter to wget. If your dataset is zipped use the command !unzip.

If your dataset is on Kaggle, please take a look in library kaggle-cli.

PS: In the case you donโ€™t know: python can make a command in CLI using the exclamation mark first, like !mkdir folder1.
