Nearest Neighbor Algorithm
From GM-RKB
A nearest neighbor algorithm is a search algorithm that locates the nearest neighbor according to some distance function.
- Context:
- It can be:
- a Nearest Neighbor Search Algorithm, to solve a Nearest Neighbor Search Task.
- a Nearest Neighbor Classification Algorithm, to solve a Supervised Classification Task.
- a Nearest Neighbor Regression Algorithm, to solve a Supervised Regression Task.
- It can be used by an Instance-based Learning Algorithm.
- It can be:
- Example(s):
- See: Case-based Reasoning Algorithm, Neighbor Relationship.

- The nearest neighbour algorithm was one of the first algorithms used to determine a solution to the travelling salesman problem. It quickly yields a short tour, but usually not the optimal one.
