AndrewjSage/RFLOWESS: A robust approach to random forest regression

This package implements the LOWESS-RF method described by Sage, Genschel, and Nettleton. Random forest prediction weights are iteratively adjusted so that outlying cases are downweighted, resulting in a more robust prediction. Outlying cases are identified using a residual analysis. This approach is motivated by Cleveland's (1979) locally weighted regression and scatterplot smoothing technique.
