What is the Naïve Bayes Classifier Algorithm and how does it work?

Naïve Bayes is a predictive modeling algorithm which is very simple yet, very powerful. Also, Naïve Bayes is a machine learning algorithm based on the Bayes Theorem and can be implemented in various classification tasks.

So, before diving into the Naïve Bayes Classifier Algorithm, let’s get familiar with Bayes’ Theorem to obtain a better understanding of the algorithm.
