       vw - Vowpal Wabbit -- fast online learning tool

DESCRIPTION

   VW options:
       --active_learning

              active learning simulation mode

       --active_mellowness arg (=8)
              active learning mellowness parameter c_0. Default 8

       --adaptive
              use adaptive, individual learning rates.

       --exact_adaptive_norm
              use a more expensive exact norm for adaptive learning rates.
