A K-Nearest Neighbors classifier is a classification model that uses the nearest neighbors algorithm to classify a given data point. The algorithm finds the `K`

closest data points in the training dataset to identify the category of the input data point. It will then assign a class to this data point based on a majority vote. From the list of those `K`

data points, we look at the corresponding classes and pick the one with the highest number of votes. Let's see how to build a classifier using this model. The value of `K`

depends on the problem at hand.
