Discussion on the k-NN Algorithm

  • k-NN for real-valued prediction for a given unknown tuple
    • Returns the mean values of the k nearest neighbors
  • Distance-weighted nearest neighbor algorithm
    • Weight the contribution of each of the k neighbors according to their distance to the query xq

\[ w=\frac{1}{d(x_{q}, x_{i})^2} \]

      • Give greater weight to closer neighbors
  • Robust to noisy data by averaging k-nearest neighbors
  • Curse of dimensionality: distance between neighbors could be dominated by irrelevant attributes
    • To overcome it, axes stretch or elimination of the least relevant attributes
