🙏 Scream for help to Ukraine

Error code:

from sklearn.utils.validation import check_array
import numpy as np 

X = np.array([('str','res')])
array = check_array(X)

check_array - Input validation on an array, list, sparse matrix, or similar.

By default, the input is checked to be a non-empty 2D array containing only finite values.

If the dtype of the array is an object, attempt converting to float, raising on failure.

Fix code:

from sklearn.utils.validation import check_array
import numpy as np 

X = np.array([(3,6)])
array = check_array(X)

Note: scikit-learn version is 0.24.2
