What does ‘overruled by training set examples' mean?

When Sarah builds its model, the machine-learning method means that Sarah can associate a structural fragment with an Ames test positive or negative result as a consequence of the activity of the parent compounds containing this fragment. Sarah then generates a positive or negative hypothesis based on the general spread of activity in all the molecules containing this fragment in the training set.

When a query structure is entered which contains this fragment, Sarah will consider the similarity and activity of the top ten most similar compounds in the hypothesis in the calculation of a signal and a confidence score. Should this signal be opposite to the signal of the hypothesis created from the entire training set, the result is that the hypothesis is ‘overruled by training set examples’.
