Mainly all the hype in the field of Machine Learning and Neural Network has led the students of this century learn and research in this field, and the primary issue faced by lot of students and researchers is the availability of proper infrastructure. The complex algorithms need good quality and quantity of CPU’s and GPU’s. Fortunately Google has an aid for such demand, They named it Google Colaboratory. which they provide free of cost. But has lesser flexibility for the user to pass data required for computational purposes. This paper talk about a way in which researchers may feed/retrieve data dynamically without using the manual upload feature of google colaboratory. This will help the researcher or student to concentrate more on their thesis rather than pay attention on data.
