In this module, we cover the k-Nearest Neighbors (k-NN) data mining method. How would you compare this method with Multiple Linear Regression? Under what circumstances would one be preferable to the other?
Data mining is the process of analyzing data to extract knowledge using computer learning techniques. There are various methods of data mining including k-nearest neighbors and multiple linear regressions, and each of these methods cater for a specific business problem and also offers a different insight.
