We will run all the experiments and codes in this chapter using Python 3.8. You can download it from the official website, https://www.python.org/downloads/, choosing the 3.8 version.
The examples described in this chapter use the following Python packages:
We already described these packages and how to install them in Chapter 1, An Overview of Comet, so please refer back to that for further details on installation.
In addition, the running examples will need other specific requirements, which will be described in the Setting up the environment for Spark NLP section of this chapter.
Now that you have installed all the software needed in this chapter, let’s look at how to use Comet for NLP, starting by reviewing some basic concepts.
