Numbers don't lie, but sometimes they don't reveal the full story. Last week I wrote about the most popular articles from The DO Loop in 2018. The popular articles are inevitably about elementary topics in SAS programming or statistics because those topics have broad appeal. However, I also write about
Using Crio—the innovative lesson-building tool—teachers can combine their classroom expertise and creativity with proven technology to bring their ideal lessons to life with student-facing content. Crio puts audio, text, images, and video—along with the interactive content of Curriculum Pathways®—into the hands of educators. As teachers build and share new, engaging lessons,
Last year, I wrote more than 100 posts for The DO Loop blog. Of these, the most popular articles were about data visualization, SAS programming tips, and statistical data analysis. Here are the most popular articles from 2018 in each category. Data Visualization Visualize repetition in song lyrics: In one
This post rounds out the year and my series of articles on SAS REST APIs. You can read all of my posts on this topic here. The first two articles in the series: Using SAS Viya REST APIs to access images from SAS Visual Analytics and Using SAS Cloud Analytics
K(o)ennen Sie schon „DevOps“? Machen Sie SAS? Dann lohnt sich eventuell ein frischer Blick auf die Kombination! Denn immer mehr Unternehmen probieren, ihren produktiven Betrieb auch in die Hände der Software-Entwickler zu legen (2 von 3 laut Jenkins) – speziell in der Analyse, insbesondere beim agilen Modellieren und dem Veredeln

Some observers believed it would signal the eventual demise of proprietary languages such as C, Fortran and Cobol. Current surveys, however, and there are many, confirm that plenty of people continue
After almost 32 years, I am retiring from SAS.
In part one of this blog posting series, we introduced that the analytics lifecycle is much more than authoring models. As brands develop and invest into creating models to solve critical business problems, so does the requirement to manage these assets as valuable competitive differentiators. In part two of this

The complexity that gives extraordinary predictive abilities also makes these models challenging to understand. They generally don’t provide a clear explanation, and brands experimenting with machine learning are questioning whether they
This article is the first in a series of three publications covering REST APIs and their use in, and with SAS. Today, I want to cover a basic example using SAS Viya REST APIs to download an image from a report in SAS Visual Analytics.
Will AI dramatically accelerate the division of our society into the “elite” and the “worried rest”? For example, will there be highly effective personalized medicine that only very few can afford?
