ActiveClassification

ActiveClassification[f,{conf1,conf2,}]

gives an object representing the result of active classification obtained by using the function f to determine classes for the example configurations confi.

ActiveClassification[f,reg]

generates configurations within the region specified by reg.

ActiveClassification[f,sampler]

generates configurations by applying the function sampler.

ActiveClassification[f,{conf1,conf2,}nsampler]

applies the function nsampler to successively generate configurations starting from one of the confi.
