chatbot error: [E941] Can‘t find model ‘en‘

Today, when you try to run a demo of Chatbot and create an entity, an error occurs:

Traceback (most recent call last):

OSError: [E941] Can't find model 'en'. It looks like you're trying to load a model from a shortcut, which is deprecated as of spaCy v3.0. To load the model, use its full name instead:

nlp = spacy.load("en_core_web_sm")

For more details on the available models, see the models directory: https://spacy.io/models. If you want to create a blank model, use spacy.blank: nlp = spacy.blank("en")

In fact, I feel that there is a conflict between packages. Spacyv3.0 will no longer support the simple reference of “en”, and I expect the full name of “en”_ core_ web_ SM “reference. Chatbot failed to follow up, and kept trying the deprecated shortcut such as “en” in the source code.

resolvent:

Enter the tagging.py module in the Chatbot package in the PY environment, and the sentence mentioned in the error message will be:

self.nlp = spacy.load(self.language.ISO_639_1.lower())

Change to:

if self.language.ISO_639_1.lower() == 'en':
    self.nlp = spacy.load('en_core_web_sm')
else:
    self.nlp = spacy.load(self.language.ISO_639_1.lower())

The problem is resolved after reloading.
