Predictive models and medical image analysis have the potential to transform health care delivery. To accelerate innovative approaches in health analytics, teams around the world are participating in a global hackathon. In scientific communities, it's well-known that the fastest way to drive progress and discover new ideas is collaboration with
In the first of two posts spotlighting SAS R&D innovators, SAS' Udo Sglavo introduces you to developers Amy Shi, Maggie Du and Phil Helmkamp.
Minimize processed foods, cook more meals from scratch…we know, we know. But let’s be honest, making the transition away from packaged, processed foods is tough - they’re convenient and comfortable, I get it. However, homemade versions are often cheaper, almost always taste better and really aren’t difficult to make.
SAS' Leonid Batkhan explores shell scripting as an alternative way to implement parallel processing.
It can be frustrating to receive an error message from statistical software. In the early days of the SAS statistical graphics (SG) procedures, an error message that I dreaded was ERROR: Attempting to overlay incompatible plot or chart types. This error message appears when you attempt to use PROC SGPLOT
A solid business strategy addresses insurance accounting standards and much more.
Following is Editor Len Tashman's preview of the new issue of Foresight: The International Journal of Applied Forecasting. Jonathon Karelse, author of the lead story, will be presenting in the Practitioner Track of the International Symposium on Forecasting (June 27-30). Preview of Foresight #61 (2021:Q2) For many years, we’ve identified
Digital channels open the door to synthetic identity fraud. Luckily, artificial (AI, that is) can defeat synthetic.
Most introductory statistics courses introduce the bar chart as a way to visualize the frequency (counts) for a categorical variable. A vertical bar chart places the categories along the horizontal (X) axis and shows the counts (or percentages) on the vertical (Y) axis. The vertical bar chart is a precursor
With unemployment at a three-year high, the socio-economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic has hit the UK hard. While significant progress has now been made on the clinical side of the crisis, and the success of the vaccination programme is a cause for optimism, the impact on the economy will
This is another in my series of blog posts where I take a deep dive into converting R graphs into SAS graphs. Today we'll be working on pie charts. I know, I know ... you visualization 'purists' might be wagging your finger at me, and saying "pie charts are no good."
As mentioned in my article about Monte Carlo estimate of (one-dimensional) integrals, one of the advantages of Monte Carlo integration is that you can perform multivariate integrals on complicated regions. This article demonstrates how to use SAS to obtain a Monte Carlo estimate of a double integral over rectangular and
Almost a year ago, in the depths of despair after the first 100 days of the COVID-19 pandemic, I wrote a post on how government agencies could consider their options using a framework called Respond, Recover and Reimagine. Now, with greater vaccine availability and mass vaccination by governments – in
Cada vez más organizaciones de todo tipo son conscientes de la importancia de la toma de decisiones basada en datos. Este es el caso de ICEX España Exportación e Inversiones, entidad pública que promueve la internacionalización de las empresas españolas y la atracción de la inversión extranjera. A través de
A previous article shows how to use Monte Carlo simulation to estimate a one-dimensional integral on a finite interval. A larger random sample will (on average) result in an estimate that is closer to the true value of the integral than a smaller sample. This article shows how you can
If I were to say that we live in uncertain times, that would probably be an understatement. Therefore, I won’t say that. Oops, I already did. Or did I? For centuries, people around the world have been busy scratching their heads in search of a meaningful answer to Shakespeare’s profoundly
The time for experimenting with artificial intelligence (AI) is over. In a COVID-19 climate, it is important to be able to quickly scale up analytical models to industrial processes. SAS believes the solution can be found in democratizing AI. Most manufacturing businesses have large amounts of data at their disposal.
Numerical integration is important in many areas of applied mathematics and statistics. For one-dimensional integrals on the interval (a, b), SAS software provides two important tools for numerical integration: For common univariate probability distributions, you can use the CDF function to integrate the density, thus obtaining the probability that a
These days I'm hearing from people who are feeling out of place. Of course they want a world without COVID-19 and for life to feel like it used to. But as others make future plans and celebrate the potential return to "normal", they are feeling hesitant or more uncomfortable than
Artificial intelligence (AI) is one of the most popular topics in the tech industry, along with IoT, cloud and blockchain, to mention just a few. Although it is a very promising technology, it is also connected with very high expectations, quite often beyond the capabilities that AI provides today. As
A previous article discusses how to interpret regression diagnostic plots that are produced by SAS regression procedures such as PROC REG. In that article, two of the plots indicate influential observations and outliers. Intuitively, an observation is influential if its presence changes the parameter estimates for the regression by "more
Readers of my earlier post Discover Visual Analytics Report Paths with REST APIs asked for ways to export SAS Visual Analytics (VA) report content programmatically. I know this is a topic of interest from many VA report designers. So, I think it’s better to write something on this and I
According to the Forbes and SAS panel of experts, the biggest technological revolution in humankind’s history is happening right now. To be a part of it, companies need to build their own sets of ethical artificial intelligence principles. Tackling the ethical issues is the key to successfully harnessing the incredible
SAS' Leonid Batkhan reveals a fuss-free way to halt SAS program execution and terminate SAS session in batch-processing scenarios.
When you fit a regression model, it is useful to check diagnostic plots to assess the quality of the fit. SAS, like most statistical software, makes it easy to generate regression diagnostics plots. Most SAS regression procedures support the PLOTS= option, which you can use to generate a panel of
We live in a data-driven world. With touchpoints rapidly multiplying, consumer data continues to increase in volume and complexity. Insights derived from these touchpoints are crucial to improving the context of customer experiences. Investments in digital transformation to achieve a 360-degree customer view are now a necessity. Businesses need to
Machine Learning models are becoming widely used to formulate and describe processes’ key metrics across different industry fields. There is also an increasing need for the integration of these Machine Learning (ML) models with other Advanced Analytics methodologies, such as Optimization. Specifically, in the manufacturing industry, SAS explored state-of-the-art science
