Technical Question on random.seed
In cluster analysis in python module on datacamp, in Impact of seeds on distinct clusters, the lecturer passed in a list of values into random.seed.
k-means is called once without a for loop in that example. Does it mean that k-means will automatically load these 3 seeds? I don't really understand how passing a list of value into random.seed works.
Ok I've managed to track it down. The lesson is using numpy.random.seed, while there is also a random.seed from the Python standard library.
Based on my research, the best I can gather is that passing in a list is exactly the same as passing in an integer. It does nothing special, ie. it just makes the random numbers reproducible.
