Many algorithms, whether supervised or unsupervised, make use of distance measures. These measures, such as euclidean distance or cosine similarity, can often be found in algorithms such as k-NN, UMAP, HDBSCAN, etc. Understanding the field of distance measures is more important than you might realize. Take k-NN for example, a technique often used for supervised learning. As a default, it often uses euclidean distance. However, what if your data is highly dimensional?
