Dropbox has become the de facto mechanism to store and transfer large files. In fact, it’s amazing how many customers send us Dropbox links for the purpose of analyzing their data. Now in BigML you can do all of this in an integrated fashion by simply granting BigML permission to access your Dropbox files (this permission can be revoked at any time).
Once you’ve granted BigML access, you can browse your Dropbox account for files that you’d like to bring into BigML for machine learning analyses. BigML automatically only enables download of file types that we can process–so don’t worry about accidentally asking BigML to ingest your pictures, movies and presentations!
