I'm not an english native speaker and I'm still studying Machine Learning, could you revise my question and tell me if it's clear what I'm asking? I would really appreciate a lot.

Which is the format required for a partitioning algorithm?

That doesn't seem at all specific to data science, so I think the first step is to post it on a more appropriate forum.


Welcome to the site.

As Sean Owen said, this question does not look on-topic in this site, as it has nothing to do with DataScience. The 3 sites which come up to my mind where this can be on-topic are:

  1. Software Engineering
  2. Stack Overflow
  3. Computer Science

But, I am not sure about where this would make a good fit. So, you are better off asking in the Meta site with the and tags.

  • $\begingroup$ Wait a second.. it's about clustering / partitioning.. have you read it to the end? I've a list of interconnected elements listed in two columns.. I want to divide them in groups of strongly interconnected elements.. I cannot use machine learning to do that? $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ @Revious I did read it completely. Your question is very unclear. What are you trying to achieve? What have you tried so far?. Possible to make the exact question a bit more to-the-point? $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ I've modified it. Can you have a look? Should I get rid of the first part? $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ The latest additions still don't look much like a data science problem, but something more along the lines of data-oriented development, which we do not address here. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @E_net4: thanks, so data clustering is not related to data science unless it's probabilistic? (it's not a provocation) $\endgroup$
