We choose RWeka for this tutorial, as it provides a lot more than simply kNN classification, and the sample session shown below can be used to generate other classifiers with little modification. Once installed, RWeka can be loaded in as a library: We now load a sample dataset, the famous Iris dataset and learn a kNN classifier for it, using default parameters: We can weight neighbors by the inverse of their distance to the target instance, or by 1 - distance.
We can use leave-one-out cross-validation to choose the optimal value for k in the training data. We can use a sliding window of training instances, so once the classifier knows about W instances, older instances are dropped as new ones are added.
We can customize the way the algorithm stores the known instances, which allows us to use kd-trees and similar data structures for faster neighbor search in large datasets. Case Study[ edit ] We will now perform a more detailed exploration of the Iris dataset, using cross-validation for real test statistics, and also performing some parameter tuning.
Dataset[ edit ] The Iris dataset contains instances, corresponding to three equally-frequent species of iris plant Iris setosa, Iris versicolour, and Iris virginica. An Iris versicolor is shown below, courtesy of Wikimedia Commons. Iris versicolor Each instance contains four attributes: The next picture shows each attribute plotted against the others, with the different classes in color.
Plotting the Iris attributes Execution and Results[ edit ] We will generate a kNN classifier, but we'll let RWeka automatically find the best value for k, between 1 and We'll also use fold cross validation to evaluate our classifier: Typically, however, the model will make fewer than 10 mistakes.
Analysis[ edit ] This simple case study shows that a kNN classifier makes few mistakes in a dataset that, although simple, is not linearly separable, as shown in the scatterplots and by a look at the confusion matrix, where all misclassifications are between Iris Versicolor and Iris Virginica instances.
The case study also shows how RWeka makes it trivially easy to learn classifiers and predictors, and clustering models as welland to experiment with their parameters. In this classic dataset, a kNN classifier makes very few mistakes. Annual Eugenics, 7, Part II, Among instance-based learning algorithms, k-nearest neighbors (k-NN) is a simple yet powerful classification algorithm.
It was designed with the assumption that neighboring (nearby) data points are likely to share the same label (class value). In this paper k-nearest neighbor algorithm (K-NN) is used as the technique of classification of objects based on closest training examples in the feature space.
