RapidMiners, THIS is your 5 Minutes with Ingo:

This week, Ingo Mierswa, RapidMiner’s CEO, Co-Founder & Data Scientist in Residence, explains how the K-nearest-neighbors algorithm is used to formulate ideas by comparing points in a data-space and using the most similar data points as guidelines for predictions. Plus, Ingo asks Data Scientist Number 7 to clean up Glen’s mess, Doc Brown makes another split-second appearance and we hear the brief chuckle of a Python wearing a tuxedo.

DISCLAIMER: No data scientists were harmed during the filming of this episode. In fact, they were too busy doing amazing things with RapidMiner.
