Summary
Abstract: The k-nearest neighbor (k-NN) technique is a non-parametric technique that can be used to make predictions of discrete (class-type) as well as continuous variables. The k-NN technique and many of its derivatives belong to the group of .lazy learning algorithms.. It is .lazy., as it passively stores the development data set until the time of application; all calculations are performed only when estimations need to be generated.
