Inference for Random Forests

A set of add on tools for the 'randomForest' package.

Build Status DOI


R package for generating prediction and prediction variances from random forests. Read the vignettes for an introduction to the package (vignette('RFinfer-examples')) and the theory behind the infinitesimal jackknife applied to random forest predictions (vignette('IJ_vig')).

Options for random forest include using a subsample or bootstrap sample for each tree and using either conditional inference tree or traditional CART used as base learners.
