k-Nearest Neighbors

This episode explores the k-nearest neighbors algorithm which is an unsupervised, non-parametric method that can be used for both classification and regression. The basic concept is that it leverages some distance function on your dataset to find the k closests other observations of the dataset and averaging them to impute an unknown value or unlabelled datapoint.
