Python ITK functions do not appear to survive a pickle roundtrip in different processes

Process 1

import pickle, itk

Process 2

import pickle
ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'itkMedianImageFilterPython'


This is on an Ubuntu laptop with Python installed with Miniconda

(base) mrocklin@carbon-7:~$ pip list | grep itk
itk                    5.1rc1.post1

I'm trying to make ITK to work better with Dask. For that my minimal test case is as follows:

from dask.distributed import Client
import itk, numpy as np

if __name__ == "__main__":
    with Client() as client:
        x = client.submit(np.ones, (100, 100))
        y = client.submit(itk.median_image_filter, x, radius=2)
