### Knn Classifier

Who provides the f(x) in classical algorithms? How are machine learning algorithms different? What does the KNN algorithm search for? How does the KNN algorithm find the neighbors?

### Euclidian Distance

The algorithm works by finding the k nearest neighbors to the input data point. The predicted label is assign based on the majority vote of the k-nearest neighbors. The nearest neighbor is find using euclidean distance between two points. $$ d(x,y) = \sqrt{(x2 - x1)^2 + (y2 - y1)^2} $$```

### Three dimensions

Extending the Euclidean distance formula from two dimensions to three dimensions involves adding another term for the third dimension. The Euclidean distance between two points in three dimensions is computed as: $$ d(x,y,z) = \sqrt{(x2 - x1)^2 + (y2 - y1)^2 + (z2 - z1)^2} $$```

### KNN Class

The algorithm doesn't work by running separate KNN calculations for each feature pair independently. Instead, it considers all features simultaneously for each data point. When you calculate KNN for a new data point with multiple features, the algorithm measures the distance between this new point and all other points in the dataset using all features. Lets encapsulate the algorithm into a class that classify items. The class implements a k-nearest neighbors algorithm for classification. The prediction is based on the majority class of its nearest neighbors in the training dataset. $$ d(X) = \sqrt{\sum_{i=1}^{n} (x2_i - x1_i)^2} $$```
