A Nearest Neighbor Search is perhaps the simplest procedure you might conceive of if presented with a machine-learning-type problem while under the influence of some sort of generalized “veil of ignorance”. Though there exist slightly more complicated variations in the algorithm, the basic principle of all of them is effectively the same.
