The previous one was not really saying what it was about, so this one might attract more people to it.

What does "robust" mean in this context?

Oh - I see this also in the paper. It's because the median is a "robust" statistic (relatively oblivious to outliers). Merging.

Exactly, since it's based on statistical estimation, it's deterministic, and the median is a statistic which is robust to outliers. Hence, it's more powerful than the other method, provided you respect the hypothesis of course.
