Unzip the zip file in "Assets"

When I'm trying to build some models in Watson, the very first step is to upload my data. I wish I can upload the data in zip format and then unzip it on cloud (so there is less upload from my side). For example, a 743MB data file can be compressed to 18MB ( It will save so much time for data scientists, especially data engineers to deal with big data. 

I know we can still unzip the files in notebooks, but the integration between notebook and COS is actually not good. If I try to save the data to Assets in notebook, the data is in COS bucket but I cannot find it anywhere in project.

    Basically, if we have a good file system, this can be solved.
