Problems are generally language agnostic, aside from being anti-English (or any other human language) Getting the intent refined down to an algorithm is the hard part.
Do you need to identify subgroups, or filter items into known subgroups? Either way, I'd suggest you keep those processes separate.
Also, how fuzzy are these groups? You said the examples are all from the same greater subgroup, but some have all zeros and others have all ones.

Snippets of code should be wrapped in

tags should generally be avoided. If they must
be used, extreme care should be
taken to ensure that their contents do not
have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent
horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor
