A Deep-Q Network (DQN) is a reinforcement learning technique that attempts to model the actions that perform best in each state in real-time.
The recently released 2021 Gartner MQ for Data Science and Machine Learning contains a wealth of information and here are my takes on key market trends from that report for data scientists. This evaluation features SAS Viya with its SAS Data Science offerings.
An analyst report offers an unbiased, side-by-side, third-party evaluation of the technology in the market. These analysts know how to put the vendors through the paces and require proof of any claims that are made.
An embedding model is a way to reduce the dimensionality of input data, such as images. Consider this to be a type of data preparation applied to image analysis. When an embedding model is used, input images are converted into low-dimensional vectors that can be more easily used by other computer vision tasks. The key to good embedding is to train the model so that similar images are converted to similar vectors.
I spoke with Antonie Berkel and Dr. Joost Huiskens about a systems analysis project for the design of a clinical decision support system (CDSS) which integrates computer vision to help radiologists monitor the progression of tumors.
Let's talk about using DLPy to model employee retention through a survival analysis model. Survival analysis is used to model time-to-event. Examples of time-to-event include the time until an employee leaves a company, the time until a disease goes into remission, or the time until a mechanical part fails. The
Computer vision can augment radiologists and make the image interpretation process cheaper, faster and more accurate. The ultimate goal is to achieve a better patient outcome facilitated by the use of computer vision.
With NHANES data from the CDC, we can use SAS to research the impact of endocrine-disrupting chemicals. Special sampling techniques are needed when using these data.
This series of videos spotlights a very powerful API that lets you use Python while also having access to the power of SAS Deep Learning.
I look forward to Pi Day every year at SAS because it's a day of celebration including yummy pies and challenging games that challenge you to recall the digits after the decimal point in Pi. Plus you get to wear Pi t-shirts (I have about seven). Today, though we are going to talk about DLPy which sounds like Pi and
There are four widely recognized styles of machine learning: supervised, unsupervised, semi-supervised and reinforcement learning. These styles have been discussed in great depth in the literature and are included in most introductory lectures on machine learning algorithms. As a recap, the table below summarizes these styles. For a comprehensive mapping
Several weeks ago, I wrote about practical advice from a Chief Data Scientist in my blog “From Aristotle to Pi: Practical advice from a chief data scientist.” Now I want to offer my advice as a newbie trying to navigate through machine learning concepts and how to code them. Over
Did you know that SAS has two on-site solar farms? At a combined 2.3 MW in capacity, SAS’ solar farms are located on 12 acres at world headquarters in Cary, NC. The photovoltaic (PV) solar arrays generate 3.8 million kilowatt-hours of clean, renewable energy each year, reducing carbon dioxide emissions
What can you learn from a chief data scientist who's worked in analytics for for 25 years and has been involved in the development of many key SAS solutions, including SAS Enterprise Miner? As a veteran of the analytics industry, Wayne Thompson has witnessed the evolution of machine learning and
SAS® supports the creation of deep neural network models. Examples of these models include convolutional neural networks, recurrent neural networks, feedforward neural networks and autoencoder neural networks. Let’s examine in more detail how SAS creates deep learning models using SAS® Visual Data Mining and Machine Learning. Deep learning models with
