Concordance Based Bootstrap Methods for Outlier Detection in Survival Analysis (survBootOutliers)
Three new methods to perform outlier detection in a survival context. In total there are six methods provided, the first three methods are traditional residual-based outlier detection methods, the second three are the concordance-based. Package developed during the work on the two following publications: Pinto J., Carvalho A. and Vinga S. (2015) <doi:10.5220/0005225300750082>; Pinto J.D., Carvalho A.M., Vinga S. (2015) <doi:10.1007/978-3-319-27926-8_22>.

Generates Prior Distributions for Proportions (PriorGen)
Translates beliefs into prior information in the form of Beta and Gamma distributions. It can be mainly used for the generation of priors on the prevalence of disease and the sensitivity/specificity of diagnostic tests.

Implementation of Unsupervised Neural Architectures (ruta)
Implementation of several unsupervised neural networks, from building their architecture to their training and evaluation. Available networks are auto-encoders including their main variants: sparse, contractive, denoising, robust and variational, as described in Charte et al. (2018) <doi:10.1016/j.inffus.2017.12.007>.
