Plot randomly generated classification dataset

This example plots several randomly generated classification datasets. For easy visualization, all datasets have 2 features, plotted on the x and y axis. The color of each point represents its class label.

The first 4 plots use the make_classification with different numbers of informative features, clusters per class and classes. The final 2 plots use make_blobs and make_gaussian_quantiles.

One informative feature, one cluster per class, Two informative features, one cluster per class, Two informative features, two clusters per class, Multi-class, two informative features, one cluster, Three blobs, Gaussian divided into three quantiles
