Is Fiftyone a necessary requirement to use ImageClassificationData.from_folders?

Hi all,
I’m trying to run the finetuning tutorial for flash at Image Classification — Flash documentation ( from a remote notebook. I keep getting errors regarding fiftyone and have gone down a deep rabbit hole trying to get it installed successfully on my setup. I’m not an admin so I don’t have complete control over it, and have been not been successful so far due to a package, Kaleido, not having a valid version I can install with. Do I need to get fiftyone properly installed in order to use flash or can I load my dataset and use flash without it installed? This could be a dealbreaker for me at this point.
