comment How to obtain the class conditional probability when using KNN classifier?
Should we learn the coefficients $B_0$ and $B_1$ ?!

comment How to obtain the class conditional probability when using KNN classifier?
Using that kind of smoothing, we will just get a the same probability values for all classes having $N_i = 0$, so instead of having $P(y_i|x) = 0$, we will get $P(y_i|x) = \frac{s}{K + C \times s} = constant$. Does that change something compared to the 0 probabilities case ?

What do you mean by "using the class probability in the whole data" ? Can you please give more details (by editing your current answer) ? Thanks.

comment How to obtain the class conditional probability when using KNN classifier?
If some classes do not appear in the $k$ neighbourhood of $x$ (e.g. no instance belonging to a given class $y_i$ is among the $k$ nearest instances to $x$); how would you do in this case ?

comment How to obtain the class conditional probability when using KNN classifier?
(1) What is $B_0$ and $B_1$ (how to set them) ? (2) what you call $d$ is the mean distance from $x$ to the $k$ nearest points belonging to a given class $y_i$ (in which case it is $d_i$) ? or is it the mean distance to the instances belonging to the majority class in the $k$ neighbourhood of $x$ ? Please give more details. Thanks.
