One of the simples algorithms in Machine Learning is k-Neares Neighbors. It is considered a “lazy learning” algorithm where all the calculations are deferred until classification. It works like this:…

Decision Trees

When you have to deal with non-linear decision making, you can use decision trees to transform it into a linear decision surface. Let say we have a buddy that goes…

Support Vector Machines
