Calculates the per-observation absolute error as $$
\left| t_i - r_i \right|.
$$

Measure to compare true observed response with predicted response in regression tasks.

Note that this is an unaggregated measure, returning the losses per observation.

## Arguments

- truth
(`numeric()`

)

True (observed) values.
Must have the same length as `response`

.

- response
(`numeric()`

)

Predicted response values.
Must have the same length as `truth`

.

- ...
(`any`

)

Additional arguments. Currently ignored.

## Value

Performance value as `numeric(length(truth))`

.

Type: `"regr"`

Range (per observation): \([0, \infty)\)

Minimize (per observation): `TRUE`

Required prediction: `response`
