Default Re: How Many Iterations to Pick Best K-Cluster?

The problem specifies that each run starts with random centers, and the only time they are revised (starting with another set of random centers) is when one of the clusters becomes empty during the iterations of Lloyd's algorithm.

There are different approaches to choosing the centers that may lead to different performance. The above approach is the one used in this problem.
