Despite a good number of resources available online (including KDnuggets dataset) for large datasets, many aspirants and practitioners (primarily, the newcomers) are rarely aware of the limitless options when it comes to trying their Data Science skills on real-life large datasets. Thus, we are consistently on the lookout for greater and better datasets available for public use.
