Get Started

To compile our feature processing binaries:

./init-script/build.sh

This will also install/compile all the external dependencies such as Indri and WANDbl. Programs and header files will be installed at external/local/bin.

To install python dependencies:

pip install -r python/requirements.txt

Other bash scripts and Makefiles under experiments should work out of the box.
