# Define Naive Bayes?

Naive Bayes is a popular classification algorithm used for predictive modeling. It is a supervised machine learning algorithm which is based on Bayes theorem.

It is easy to build a model using Naive Bayes algorithm when working with a large dataset. It is comprised of two words, Naive and Bayes, where Naive means features are unrelated to each other.

In simple words, we can say that “Naive Bayes classifier assumes that the features present in a class are statistically independent to the other features.”
