rfOutliers {CORElearn} | R Documentation |
Based on random forest instance proximity measure detects training cases which are different to all other cases.

Strangeness is defined using the random forest model via a proximity matrix (see rfProximity
).
If the number is greater than 10, the case can be considered an outlier according to Breiman 2001.
For each instance from a dataset
the function returns a numeric score of its strangeness to other cases.
