Does anyone know a (free) method for importing large datasets into Google Colab, of multiple GB? Github is severely limited, uploading a folder to google drive takes a long time.

  • $\begingroup$ A better option will be to use wget command. I have discussed various approaches here. $\endgroup$ – Shubham Panchal Nov 2 '20 at 14:33

One option is that you can download the dataset into your system and save it in an easily accessible directory. Then, run the following codes:

from google.colab import files
data = files.upload()

After running the above line, you will get a Choose File button where you can directly browse your system and choose your file.
