piRF: Prediction Intervals for Random Forests

Implements multiple state-of-the-art prediction interval methodologies for random forests. These include: quantile regression intervals, out-of-bag intervals, bag-of-observations intervals, one-step boosted random forest intervals, bias-corrected intervals, high-density intervals, and split-conformal intervals. The implementations include a combination of novel adjustments to the original random forest methodology and novel prediction interval methodologies. All of these methodologies can be utilized using solely this package, rather than a collection of separate packages. Currently, only regression trees are supported. Also capable of handling high dimensional data. Roy, Marie-Helene and Larocque, Denis (2019) <doi:10.1177/0962280219829885>. Ghosal, Indrayudh and Hooker, Giles (2018) <arXiv:1803.08000>.
