spaCy Training Model vs Prodigy

Should I train a new model in spaCy before working with the features in Prodigy?

This page recommends to use prodigy:

Do these processes work together or conflict?


Hi @kylebigelow , welcome to Prodigy!

No, these processes don't conflict with one another. You can train a model even from Prodigy. If you will be annotating data, your workflow may be: annotate data -> train spaCy model using prodigy train -> evaluate. Under the hood, the prodigy train command also calls the same functions as spaCy, so you're virtually using the same setup.
