**K-Nearest Neighbors – the Laziest Machine Learning Technique**- Sep 12, 2017.

K-Nearest Neighbors (K-NN) is one of the simplest machine learning algorithms. When a new situation occurs, it scans through all past experiences and looks up the k closest experiences. Those experiences (or: data points) are what we call the k nearest neighbors.**Neighbors Know Best: (Re) Classifying an Underappreciated Beer**- Nov 24, 2016.
