I’ve a couple of questions regarding swarming:
Suppose I have 2 inputs. I know exactly what I want to use to encode one of them, and only want the swarming to work on determining suitable parameters for the encoding of the 2nd input.
Is it possible to constrain the swarming to only work on one of the inputs while I fully specifying the other?
If so, how?
(In general I’ll have n inputs that I want to specify and m that I want to swarm on.)
I am currently swarming over an input that I specify as a “string” and specify that a "C"ategory encoder should be used. The input file has 204 unique values for this input.
As expected, the swarming returns an SDRCategoryEncoder, however it specifies n=121 and w=21 for the encoder. With that n and w I cannot see how the categories can possible be unique (i.e. with no overlap of bits as I would expect in a category encoder). Is my expectation incorrect? If so why, and if not then why does the swarming return this n and w.
