5,821 days. That’s the time that separates Silicon Valley Bank’s (SVB) collapse and the failure of real estate investment trust New Century in 2007, notably the first domino to fall in the Global Financial Crisis (GFC) of 2007-08. Last week’s events represent a sobering reality check. In 2023, banks can
Welcome to my series on getting started with Python integration to SAS Viya for predictive modeling. Exploring Data - Learn how to explore the data before fitting a model Working with Dates - Learn how to format a SAS Date and calculate a new column Imputing Missing Values - Learn
Welcome to the first post in my series Getting Started with Python Integration to SAS Viya for Predictive Modeling. I'm going to dive right into the content assuming you have minimal knowledge on SAS Cloud Analytic Services (CAS), CAS Actions and Python. For some background on these subjects, refer to
In a previous article about Markov transition matrices, I mentioned that you can estimate a Markov transition matrix by using historical data that are collected over a certain length of time. A SAS programmer asked how you can estimate a transition matrix in SAS. The answer is that you can
One of Warren Buffett’s most famous quotes goes like this: “Only when the tide goes out do you discover who’s been swimming naked.” That time is now for interest rate risk managers, who have been basking in the warm sea of declining interest rates for most of the last four

Consumer goods manufacturers have faced significant challenges over the past few years due to rapidly changing demand and supply disruptions in their end-to-end supply chain. As a result, manufacturers have realized the need to strengthen their resilience and have prioritized assessing their manufacturing capacity to maximize output and automation. To
As in most other sectors, health care is changing at lightning speed. Access to data makes it possible to speed up clinical trials, develop more personalized medication, make quicker and better diagnoses, improve the quality of patient care and save lives. The pandemic has sped up digital transformation in every
Most homeowners know that large home improvement projects can take longer than you expect. Whether it's remodeling a kitchen, adding a deck, or landscaping a yard, big projects are expensive and subject to a lot of uncertainty. Factors such as weather, the availability of labor, and the supply of materials,
This blog post was originally published in October of 2019 and the topic has come up so much recently in my conversations with parents, I thought now would be a good time to re-publish it. When it comes to internet safety, I often hear the discussion framed as "to monitor
SAS® Viya® has been making waves in the analytics and AI industry. SAS Viya has recently been included in G2’s annual ranking of Best Analytics and AI products for 2023, a list based partly on user feedback. So, what are SAS users and industry analysts saying about SAS Viya? Let's
A previous article describes the metalog distribution (Keelin, 2016). The metalog distribution is a flexible family of distributions that can model a wide range of shapes for data distributions. The metalog system can model bounded, semibounded, and unbounded continuous distributions. This article shows how to use the metalog distribution in
SAS SVP Kimberly May writes about her plans for SAS Technical Support for 2023.
Women are trailblazing new ideas across industries, countries and cultures every day. This International Women’s Day, take a minute to read some innovative SAS Hackathon highlights for this upcoming year and from the past. You'll also learn about some incredible women and see what amazing innovations lie ahead. AI
Pi Day is upon us! Every year on March 14, math-lovers unite to celebrate all things pi because the date (written 3/14 in the US) matches the first three digits of pi, 3.14.
Happy Pi Day! Every year on March 14th (written 3/14 in the US), people in the mathematical sciences celebrate "all things pi-related" because 3.14 is the three-decimal approximation to π ≈ 3.14159265358979.... Modern computer methods and algorithms enable us to calculate 100 trillion digits of π. However, I think it
Analytics can get you answers from data. With an ever-increasing volume of data and new regulatory pressures, you need to know more than knowing where and how it is used. It's critical to comprehend the data: Is it relevant? Does it contain sensitive or private information? Can we detect bias?
Editor's note: This article follows Curious about ChatGPT: Exploring the origins of generative AI and natural language processing. As ChatGPT has entered the scene, many fears and uncertainties have been expressed by those working in education at all levels. Educators worry about cheating and rightly so. ChatGPT can do everything
Undergraduate textbooks on probability and statistics typically prove theorems that show how the variance of a sum of random variables is related to the variance of the original variables and the covariance between them. For example, the Wikipedia article on Variance contains an equation for the sum of two random
Generative AI (GAI) is a category of AI that can create new content, including video, audio, images and text. GAI has the potential to change the way we approach content creation.

SAS' Mary Carter details challenges and benefits of accelerating the delivery of SAS software.
A SAS programmer wanted to compute the distribution of X-Y, where X and Y are two beta-distributed random variables. Pham-Gia and Turkkan (1993) derive a formula for the PDF of this distribution. Unfortunately, the PDF involves evaluating a two-dimensional generalized hypergeometric function, which is not available in all programming languages.
As the world moves toward a low-carbon future, the power and utilities industry faces significant financial and reputational risks due to the potential stranding of resources and assets. This transition to carbon-free energy sources could render carbon-intensive assets – such as coal- and gas-fired power plants, coal mines and hydrocarbon
