SAS Model Manager and the sasctl packages aim to create a seamless ModelOps and MLOps process for Python and R models. Python and R models are not second-class citizens within SAS Model Manager. SAS, Python, and R models can be easily managed using our no-code/low-code interface. This is an interface that can be extended to support a variety of use cases.
Welcome to the continuation of my series Getting Started with Python Integration to SAS Viya. In this post I'll discuss how to remove duplicate rows from a distributed CAS table using the both the Pandas API in the SWAT package and the native CAS action. The Pandas API drop_duplicates method was
Congratulations! You’ve been tasked to manage an analytics team within your organization. In this role, it’s crucial to establish effective management practices to lead a successful team. As a manager, your role goes beyond overseeing day-to-day operations; it involves fostering a collaborative and productive environment, nurturing talent and aligning your
The global population is aging faster than ever. The United Nations estimates there are nearly one billion people over the age of 60. That number is expected to more than double by 2050. With this growth comes a rise in chronic illnesses that are, unfortunately, part of the aging process.
Life insurance is hard to sell. People don’t like talking about it because it draws attention to a topic no one wants to consider for themselves. Death. Life insurers have earned a reputation for laborious and intrusive processes to secure the coverage that everyone needs. So, over the years, they
Artificial sweeteners have been around for decades promising benefits such as reduced risk for diabetes and weight reduction. However, what most research is finding is that they don’t do either of these things and they might be doing more harm than good. Over the years, as we learn more about
A SAS programmer wanted to use PROC SGPLOT in SAS to visualize a regression model. The programmer wanted to visualize confidence limits for the predicted mean at certain values of the explanatory variable. This article shows two options for adding confidence limits to a scatter plot. You can use a
Hello from Women in Analytics (WIA)! We're featuring SAS' incredibly talented 2023 intern class, specifically the United in STEM program. This program is designed to provide valuable work experience for students from diverse backgrounds enrolled in an accredited degree program who are passionate about technology. This year's class features 43
Data has emerged as a crucial weapon in the battle against the overdose epidemic in the United States. Government agencies nationwide are grappling with social issues such as gun violence, gang activity, burglaries and homelessness to go along with the enduring overdose crisis. Addressing these issues requires using data to
The acceptance-rejection method (sometimes called rejection sampling) is a method that enables you to generate a random sample from an arbitrary distribution by using only the probability density function (PDF). This is in contrast to the inverse CDF method, which uses the cumulative distribution function (CDF) to generate a random
Don McMillan - America's top nerdy comedian -- is a featured entertainer at SAS Explore, Sept 11-14 in Las Vegas.
I love the world of science because it’s measurable and can be replicated. I’m also a strong believer in natural remedies because they have been documented for centuries and grow on our beautiful Mother Earth...you just have to know what you’re looking for. While I certainly appreciate pharmaceuticals and believe
As insurance continues to evolve, the link between analytics, AI and organizational success has never been more apparent. Marvin Pestcoe serves on the boards of Hamilton Insurance and Catalina Insurance. He is a fellow of the Casualty Actuarial Society. In short, he understands the connection between analytics, AI and insurance
It might be more down to organic growth rather than a strategy that many large-scale organisations today operate in a multi and hybrid cloud environment. But orchestrating a mix of cloud and on-premise infrastructure is a growing challenge. Despite the benefits of flexibility, scalability, security and avoiding a single point
There are dozens of common probability distributions for a continuous univariate random variable. Familiar examples include the normal, exponential, uniform, gamma, and beta distributions. Where did these distributions come from? Well, some mathematician needed a model for a stochastic process and wrote down the equation for the distribution, typically by
SAS integration with Microsoft Word empowers you to streamline your company’s data analysis, enhance reporting capabilities, and unlock valuable marketing insights, all with the power of SAS Viya.
As a member of the SAS Data Ethics Practice, I was excited to collaborate with teams at the SAS Hackathon to learn more about their ideas for trustworthy AI. Artificial Intelligence has the potential to make a difference in the real world, and partnering with the hackathon teams was a
Pasta is a staple in the American diet and a food loved by many (myself included!). Not only is pasta versatile, affordable, and easy to prepare, but absolutely delicious. While traditional pasta contains a little bit of protein – about 7 grams per 2-ounce serving – there are several alternative
Let X be any rectangular matrix. What is the trace of the crossproducts matrix, X'*X? Interestingly, you do not need to form the crossproducts matrix to compute the answer! It turns out that tr(X'*X) equals the sum of the squared elements of X. Theorem: For any matrix, X, the trace
In a previous article, I discussed the Wilcoxon signed rank test, which is a nonparametric test for the location of the median. The Wikipedia article about the signed rank test mentions a variation of the test due to Pratt (1959). Whereas the standard Wilcoxon test excludes values that equal μ0
If you are like me, you spend most of your day sitting. The average adult in the US spends 8-12 hours of their day sitting. Whether you are sitting because your work requires it or you have reduced mobility due to an injury or condition, you can improve overall fitness
From within PowerPoint, you can use the SAS menu available through SAS for Microsoft 365, to access SAS Visual Analytics reports' graphical visuals.
Wilcoxon's signed rank test is a popular nonparametric alternative to a paired t test. In a paired t test, you analyze measurements for subjects before and after some treatment or intervention. You analyze the difference in the measurements for each subject, and test whether the mean difference is significantly different
At SAS, where you start doesn’t have to be where you end; and there’s ample opportunity for internal career mobility. Ronaldo Aoki is a great example – since he started his career at SAS, he’s made multiple internal moves, and his most recent shift came with an exciting geographic move
A previous article discusses standardized coefficients in linear regression models and shows how to compute standardized regression coefficients in SAS by using the STB option on the MODEL statement in PROC REG. It also discusses how to interpret a standardized regression coefficient. Recently, a SAS user wanted to know how
Despite returning to a semblance of normalcy, research shows that a vast number of students still find themselves in the midst of a mental health crisis. It comes as no surprise to educators and parents alike, as the COVID-19 pandemic has wreaked havoc on relationships and social support – key
By simply logging into SAS Viya from Outlook, data visualizations can give you immediate information about key metrics and business performance through AI-powered explanations.
Do you have fond childhood memories of eating marshmallowy, chocolatey or fruity bowls of breakfast cereal and digging into those boxes for a new pencil topper, sticker or magical color-changing spoon? Do you also remember being hungry (dare I say hangry) within an hour or so of breakfast? What about
Traffic services, more specifically, unsafe driving, impact people every single day. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, nearly 43,000 people died in U.S. traffic crashes in 2021, the highest number in 16 years, with deaths due to speeding and impaired or distracted driving on the rise. Pedestrian fatalities
