I'm a beginner programmer in Machine Learning and NLP. For a project I'm working on, I need Prodigy to pretrain an NER model. However, I am having issues running it. I made a new environment and installed prodigy in the terminal, but the recipes or any commands for that matter aren't working. Am I doing something wrong? I am using Conda and Visual Studio Code, is there an issue there. Is there anything else I need to install. Is it possible I could get a more beginner level tutorial on how to install/use Prodigy for myself?
Hi! What exactly do you mean by "not working"? Are you seeing an specific error?
If you haven't seen it yet, the first steps guide is a good place to start if you're new to Prodigy: https://prodi.gy/docs#first-steps (However, what you describe sounds more like an installation or environment problem related to pip/conda and your Python environment and not specifically Prodigy itself.)
If you're just getting started with NLP, I'd also recomment checking out the spaCy 101 guide and usage documentation: https://spacy.io/usage/spacy-101
