In case-specific random forests (CSRF), random forests are built specific to the cases of interest. Instead of using equal probabilities, the cases are weighted according to their difference to the case of interest.

The algorithm consists of 3 steps:

Grow a random forest on the training data

For each observation of interest (test data), the weights of all training observations are computed by counting the number of trees in which both observations are in the same terminal node.

For each test observation, grow a weighted random forest on the training data, using the weights obtained in step 2. Predict the outcome of the test observation as usual.

In total, n+1 random forests are grown, where n is the number observations in the test dataset. For details, see Xu et al. (2014).

Predictions for the test dataset.
