We had to fix the following issues before running the algorithm and will apply relevant penalties during the final scoring:
- invalid languages output format, fixed extra comma ([," => [")

Thanks for the fix! But here is the language output of my binary I sent you:
this json is totally valid :)
Also my benchmarks seem to show completely different results when I run them on your final dataset.
Hope you'll look into this issue I'am having.
i've attached a screenshot from the benchmark
I'am running on google cloud n1-highcpu-8 (8 vCPUs, 7.2 GB memory)
the binary is the same i sent you

Here is languages output of your submission:
Try to run it several times, sometimes the result is valid, and sometimes not.

ok, seems to reproduce on smaller datasets.
Thank you very much and sorry for the noise, this app is far from complete when viewing it with this kind of viewer :)
Have no idea if the benchmarks changed after your fix or not, but definitely don't match with what I'am getting myself with this latest dataset. But anyway this is too small of a dataset, to show the real performance, i was testing mainly on the 2gb dataset( and app has exceptional top perfomance which takes about 60s for the whole dataset with about 100k articles totalling. But I guess this is for the geeks :) Thanks!
Too little news -> very poor economy/sports categories

very small dataset for my kind of precision
Nobody added any issues yet...
