[R] KNN

Perhaps Alnazer is trying to implement "majority vote" kNN:
>From Wikipedia
(https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/K-nearest_neighbors_algorithm):
In k-NN classification, the output is a class membership. An object is classified by a majority vote of its neighbors, with the object being assigned to the class most common among its k nearest neighbors (k is a positive integer, typically small). If k = 1, then the object is simply assigned to the class of that single nearest neighbor.
But as Jim said, your function does not do this. It does not even run kNN.

Hi Alnazer,
I'm not surprised that it didn't do what you expected. Even if I clean
up the code so that it will actually run:
majorityGuessing<-function(trainingData,categories) {
GuessMPG<-sample(1:length(categories),nrow(trainingData),replace=TRUE)
return(GuessMPG)
}
and call it like this (assuming that you are trying to do something
like guessing MPG from the number of cylinders):
auto<-read.csv("auto.csv")
majorityGuessing(auto$MPG,unique(auto$CYLINDERS))
the result is just a sample of 398 integers ranging from 1 to 5, which
is not even a guess. Unfortunately, I can't work out what metric you
want to select "nearest neighbors", but perhaps someone else can.
