1.1. Key Concepts in this Notebook

  1. Examine the inner-bits of spaCy by looking at a model in the folder level

1.2. Quick Note

This notebook is really important, but it is difficult to present the information in notebook form. If someone has a suggestion for how to do this, please feel free to let me know and I will update this notebook.

I am providing a video that covers the subject. I will be the first to admit that this video is quite dry, but I cannot emphasize enough how important it is to understand the concepts discussed in this video. Understanding how spaCy models work is vital to customizing a spaCy model.
