Forest-based methods have recently gained in popularity for non-parametric treatment effect estimation. Building on this line of work, we introduce causal survival forests, which can be used to estimate heterogeneous treatment effects in a survival and observational setting where outcomes may be right-censored... Our approach relies on orthogonal estimating equations to robustly adjust for both censoring and selection effects. In our experiments, we find our approach to perform well relative to a number of baselines. read more
