Upload and work with local files

This topic includes code samples that demonstrate how to access local data for CML workloads.

If you want to work with existing data files (.csv, .txt, etc.) from your computer, you can upload these files directly to your project in the CML workspace. Go to the project's Overview page. Under the Files section, click Upload and select the relevant data files to be uploaded. These files will be uploaded to an NFS share available to each project.

The following sections use the tips.csv dataset to demonstrate how to work with local data stored in your project. Before you run these examples, create a folder called data in your project and upload the dataset file to it.


import pandas as pd

tips = pd.read_csv('data/tips.csv')
tips \
  .query('sex == "Female"') \
  .groupby('day') \
  .agg({'tip' : 'mean'}) \
  .rename(columns={'tip': 'avg_tip_dinner'}) \
  .sort_values('avg_tip_dinner', ascending=False)



# load data from .csv file in project
tips <- read_csv("data/tips.csv")

# query using dplyr
tips %>%
  filter(sex == "Female") %>%
  group_by(day) %>%
    avg_tip = mean(tip, na.rm = TRUE)
  ) %>%
