"NearestNeighbors" (Machine Learning Method)

Details & Suboptions

  • Nearest neighbors is a type of instance-based learning. In its simplest form, it picks the commonest class or averages the values among the k nearest neighbors.
  • The following options can be given:
  • "NeighborsNumber"Automaticthe number of neighbors to consider (k)
    "DistributionSmoothing"0.5regularization parameter
    "NearestMethod"Automaticthe method to use for computing the k-nearest examples
  • Possible settings for "NearestMethod" include:
  • "KDtree"uses a kd tree data structure for storing the data
    "Octree"uses an octree data structure for storing the data
    "Scan"exaustive search on the entire dataset
