A data gathering method based on active querying is described. In this method data is reduced to a minimum, yet modelling accuracy is uncompromised. Our active querying criterion is determined by whether or not several neural network models agree when they are fitted to random subsamples of a small amount of collected data. Experiments have established the feasibility of our algorithm. It is also shown that our approach results in a more samples being collected in the neighbourhood of the more significant inputs.
