In this guided project, we will develop a predictive model capable of accurately predicting the presence or absence of heart disease from clinical and laboratory data using a K-Nearest-Neighbors Classifier. This project, which we'll run on Google Colab, was designed for those who are taking their first steps in Machine Learning algorithms, but the student should be already familiar with Python and basic ML concepts. This Guided Project was created by a Coursera community member.
