Shopping at an Asian grocery store can be intimidating. Even I still get overwhelmed by all the choices. It helps to have a few staples to stick to, which is why I’ve narrowed down the fruit and vegetable essentials – plus a few of my personal favorites. H Mart places
On a SAS discussion forum, a statistical programmer asked about how to understand the statistics that are displayed when you use the TEST statement in PROC REG (or other SAS regression procedures) to test for linear relationships between regression coefficients. The documentation for the TEST statement in PROC REG explains
While for many the experience of the pandemic provided clarity on the relationships they wanted to pare from their life, I’d like to challenge us to take a moment to see how we can expand, in a meaningful way, the relationships in which we share connection. In his book The

Take a minute to enjoy this photo album from the event featuring SAS CEO Jim Goodnight, North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper,
One of the benefits of social media is the opportunity to learn new things. Recently, I saw a post on Twitter that intrigued me. The tweet said that the expected volume of a random tetrahedron in the unit cube (in 3-D) is E[Volume] = 0.0138427757.... This number seems surprisingly small!
Group and aggregate CAS tables Welcome to the continuation of my series Getting Started with Python Integration to SAS Viya. In previous posts, I discussed how to connect to the CAS server, how to execute CAS actions, and how to summarize columns. Now it's time to focus on how to group and aggregate CAS
Have you ever typed your credit card into an online order form and been told that you entered the wrong number? Perhaps you wondered, "How do they know that the numbers I typed do not make a valid credit card number?" The answer is that credit card numbers and other
In the modern world, hyperautomation is a way to speed up the development and launch of new digital products and processes – but how exactly can this be done? Throughout part 1 and part 2 of this blog series, we’ve been looking at what hyperautomation is and what it looks
La analítica de datos es conocida porque permite detectar patrones y comportamientos para predecir situaciones. Gracias a ella, las instituciones tienen la capacidad de anticiparse a las necesidades de los ciudadanos y poder tomar decisiones. Otra de las aplicaciones que tiene para, por ejemplo, las marcas, es poder recomendar productos
Getting demand right – or getting it wrong – can have a significant impact on customer perceptions of your brand, particularly in this age of instant gratification. The need for agile, accurate demand planning has never been greater. Predicting forward-looking demand signals and shifting consumer demand patterns to recommend balanced, profitable commercial
The benefits of AI and machine learning do not present themselves without risks. From the trustworthy use of AI and machine learning to the ability to explain the workings of the algorithms to the amplified risk of propagating bias in decision making, internal and external stakeholders are rightly concerned. However,
It is often said that cooperation is key to addressing big, intractable problems. The European Union recently highlighted this with amendments to the Administrative Tax Cooperation Directive. These amendments are designed to improve cooperation between tax authorities on administrative tax and reduce tax evasion and tax fraud. Increasing information exchange
To find exact duplicates, matching all string pairs is the simplest approach, but it is not a very efficient or sufficient technique. Using the MD5 or SHA-1 hash algorithms can get us a correct outcome with a faster speed, yet near-duplicates would still not be on the radar. Text similarity is useful for finding files that look alike. There are various approaches to this and each of them has its own way to define documents that are considered duplicates. Furthermore, the definition of duplicate documents has implications for the type of processing and the results produced. Below are some of the options. Using SAS Visual Text Analytics, you can customize and accomplish this task during your corpus analysis journey either with Python SWAT package or with PROC SQL in SAS.
SAS' multidimensional culture blends our different backgrounds, experiences and perspectives from employees in 59 countries worldwide.

We publish a lot of books by SAS experts at SAS Press, but how does someone become an expert in the first place? Becoming certified is one step, but who develops the certifications in the first place? Those are the true experts. They have to have a deep understanding of
A previous article discusses the definitions of three kinds of moments for a continuous probability distribution: raw moments, central moments, and standardized moments. These are defined in terms of integrals over the support of the distribution. Moments are connected to the familiar shape features of a distribution: the mean, variance,
Using SAS Viya in combination with open-source capabilities, we were able to develop an automated solution for logo detection that does not require any manual data labeling.

It was the summer of ’22. And in the words of Taylor Swift, “I remember it all too well” (Taylor’s version, of course). From mentoring opportunities, networking with top leaders and other interns, exploring our culture that promotes well-being and work-life integration to having meaningful work to gain real world
To ‘take the King’s (or Queen’s) shilling’ was the slang term once used when someone joined the British Armed Forces in return for payment. Reaching its height in the 18th and 19th centuries, the practice gave recruits an incentive to enlist – although, in the case of the Royal Navy,

The moments of a continuous probability distribution are often used to describe the shape of the probability density function (PDF). The first four moments (if they exist) are well known because they correspond to familiar descriptive statistics: The first raw moment is the mean of a distribution. For a random
A strong cultural emphasis on “happiness” can have the unintended effect of casting feelings other than happiness as being bad or something to avoid. But life is rich with many different feelings. Trying to suppress these can actually lead to a rebound effect. The book Get Out of Your Mind
