There are several ways to load a .zip file from GitHub into Google Colab, but one common approach is to use the "wget" command to download the .zip file from the GitHub repository and then use the "unzip" command to extract the contents. Here are the steps:

  1. Open a new notebook in Google Colab.
  2. Type the following command to install the "wget" package, if it is not already installed:
!apt-get install wget
  1. Type the following command to download the .zip file from GitHub:
!wget <github url of the .zip file>

Replace "<github url="" of="" the="" .zip="" file="">" with the actual URL of the .zip file you want to download from GitHub. For example:

  1. Type the following command to extract the contents of the .zip file:

Replace "" with the actual name of the .zip file you downloaded from GitHub.

  1. You should see the extracted files in the current working directory of your Colab notebook. You can now access these files and use them as needed in your Colab notebook.

Note: Depending on the size of the .zip file, the download and extraction process may take some time. Also, make sure that the GitHub repository is public or you have appropriate access rights to download the file.
