Setting up a virtual environment will keep your installation seperate from any other Python packages that you have installed and allows you to manage different versions of Python easily. This step is optional but recommended.
Navigate to a directory where you want the virtual environment to be located.
python3 -m pip install virtualenv python3 -m venv icu ./icu/Scripts/activate
python3 -m pip install virtualenv python3 -m venv icu source icu/bin/activate
In both cases the virtual environment can be deactivated with
For more information and support for using virtualenv see here.
conda create -n icu python=3.6 conda activate icu

Use the command below to install ICU.
pip install icu
ICU can be installed from source (requires git).
git clone https://github.com/dicelab-rhul/ICU.git pip install ICU
You can verify your installation by running ICU with the following command:
python3 -m ICU
This will run the system with the default configuration. If everything is working, head over to documentation to start configuring the system.
