Hi, I just started first video and I was curious, since teacher said that we should try out besides cats & dogs some our own dataset for classification, how could I download to Google Collab notebook directly images from web or upload from my local PC some images I found? Is there any short tutorial on google collab?
Google Collab - how to upload to notebook from local PC or to download directly to notebooky out data
For downloading from web, you can use curl or wget
!curl http://download.tensorflow.org/example_images/flower_photos.tgz !wget https://www.dropbox.com/s/7mc0xzbtkl0ppwx/simpsons.zip
This is a guide by collab for handling io -
For kaggle datasets -
Hope this helps.

Hi, I went through the lesson 1 and used my own data set by importing images into the google drive. I am curious to know if is there a way to upload and use the images directly from the local machine? (without importing the images anywhere- this is needed due to some security reasons). Thanks in advance!
