The 0 and 1 areas are more or less contiguous, though the boundary between them can be somewhat fuzzy. The boundary is expected to be described by the equation y=a x^b. How can I adapt NonlinearModelFit or any other standard function to find the best fit values for a and b? Thanks!

The boundary is the curve for which prob[z == 1] == 1/2:

Solve[1/(1 + Exp[-(b0 + b1*Log@x + b2*Log@y)]) == 1/2, y]

y -> E^(-b0/b2) x^(-b1/b2)
