Hackin' around the decision tree

4

Tis the season for my annual, fun Christmas themed blog post! This is the seventh year and my tenth song. I hope you enjoy this 2020 holiday song (to the tune of Rockin' around the Christmas Tree).

Hackin around the Decision Tree

at the SAS party hackathon

Data science algorithms available for all to use

Every team tries to be top one

You will get a deep learning experience when you see other teams singing

"Let's try a CNN; or better yet some boughs of RNN"

Hackin' around the decision tree

Have a happy time

With all the teams leveraging the data merrily

In a new, old computing way

Hackin' around the decision tree

Let the maps self organize

Later we'll try some deep belief networks

and we'll help solve the problem

You will get a deep learning experience when you see other teams singing

"Let's try a CNN; or better yet some boughs of RNN"

Hackin' around the decision tree

Have a happy time

With all the teams leveraging the data merrily

In a new old computing way

Happy Holidays everyone! And please consider registering a team to participate in the next SAS Hackathon!
