Inference Module with Python 3.12?

We are trying to get the InferenceSlicer class in the inference module to work in the context of a large seeds image being sliced and inferred.

However, I’ve been unable to get past pip install inference

Is this a problem due to having Python 3.12 instead of 3.11?

This is the stack trace:
