Data reduction is a common pre-processing step for k-nearest neighbor classification (kNN). The existing prototype selection methods implement different criteria for selecting relevant points to use in classification, which constitutes a selection bias. This study examines the nature of the instance selection bias in intrinsically high-dimensional data. In high-dimensional feature spaces, hubs are known to emerge as centers of influence in kNN classification. These points dominate most kNN setsdoi:10.2298/csis140929039t fatcat:c5veelea4bb2ho7lgw6btmzu4q
