# Why Is The K-Nearest Neighbors (KNN) Called A “Lazy Algorithm”?

Understanding why K-Nearest Neighbors is called a “lazy learner”

K-Nearest Neighbors or KNN is one of the simplest machine learning algorithms. This algorithm is very easy to implement and equally easy to understand.

It is a supervised machine learning algorithm. …

# K-Nearest Neighbors (KNN) Algorithm For Machine Learning

## Understanding the fundamental working of the KNN algorithm

K-Nearest Neighbors (KNN) is a classification machine learning algorithm. This algorithm is used when the data is discrete in nature.

It is a supervised machine learning algorithm. This means we need a set of reference data in order to determine the category of the future data point.

This algorithm classifies…

# Why Can’t We Use Linear Regression To Solve A Classification Problem?

Linear regression and Logistic regression are two of the earliest machine learning algorithms that came into existence. Both of them are supervised machine learning algorithms.

Linear regression is used when the output data is continuous in nature. While Logistic regression is used when the output data is discrete in nature.

# Linear Regression Clearly Explained (Part 2)

## Understanding the fundamental maths and working of linear regression

In part 1 of this article, we tried to understand the need for linear regression and also looked at some of the real-life scenarios where linear regression can be used.

# Linear Regression Clearly Explained (Part 1)

## Understanding the need and applications of linear regression algorithm using real-life examples.

Linear regression has been around since 1911. It is one of the core pillars of the data science and machine learning domain and is widely used in the industry to date.

This is Part 1 of the Linear regression series.

The main objective of this blog is to highlight the…

# Why Is Logistic Regression Called “Regression” If It Is A Classification Algorithm?

## The hidden relationship between linear regression and logistic regression that most of us are unaware of

Linear regression and Logistic regression are two machine learning algorithms that we all have stumbled upon during our data science journey.

But have you ever wondered, why does Logistic regression have “regression” in its name if it is a classification machine learning algorithm?

Why don’t we call it “Logistic Classification”?

# 10 Keys for Successful BI Implementation

There are no specific stone-carved set of rules when it comes to implementing a BI project. Consultants and Pundits make their own list of rules which they implement in their projects. Of course, every situation is different. Companies, market situation, and personalities involved all contribute to making a BI project…

## You have come too far to say “I Quit!”

The idea of chasing your dreams and living the life of your choice comes with a fear of uncertainty.

Will my dreams ever come true?

How long will it take before my dreams turn into reality?

What if I fail and could never get back up?

When questions like these…

# 4 Things To Do During Your Free Time

## Your time is limited. Use it wisely!

We live in an age where food which used to take us hours to obtain can be delivered to our doorsteps in under 30 minutes.

Never in the history of mankind have we had this much free time in our hands until now.

But the majority of us waste it! ## Ashish Mehta

I learn every day. And I share what I learn.
