I've collected accelerometer data with a third-party app. I've used some SAS tricks to import all of my data readings in a single step. Now I'm ready to create a report of these data in SAS Visual Analytics.

What can you learn about wildfires when you provide a room full of analysts with 7 years of US wildfire data and the tools they need to analyze it? A lot. At a recent data dive, we split 35 data scientists into 9 teams, provided multiple data sets containing information
Fest steht: Künstliche Intelligenz (KI) wird unser aller Leben verändern – und tut es schon. Weniger klar ist, in welcher Weise und in welchem Zeitrahmen diese Veränderungen passieren – und was am Ende dabei herauskommt. In vielen Bereichen gibt es wilde Spekulationen. Bei Life Sciences und im Gesundheitssektor lichtet sich
Kennen Sie das? Sie sitzen in einer Kongressveranstaltung, das Programm auf der Bühne ist beeindruckend – und trotzdem werden Sie immer wieder per Mail in Ihren Alltag zurückgeholt. Genau so ging es mir diese Woche bei der SiriusDecisions in London, einer weltweiten Konferenzreihe rund um B2B-Marketing, die allein in London
When we are admitted to hospital, we have confidence in the system and the doctors; we trust that they will do everything to cure us. Yet some patients become more ill while they are hospitalised because they acquire an infection – and in severe cases, some of them die of
The solar farm at SAS world headquarters is a treasure trove of data. Jessica Peter, Senior User Experience Designer at SAS, had an idea about using that treasure in an art installation to show how data can tell a story. Her idea became a reality when she and others at SAS
Ever since I was a child, I have loved the Warner Bros. cartoons featuring Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Road Runner and Wile E. Coyote. I was fascinated by their different characters, and how they interacted, and the way that the storylines were both the same and different. Of course, some
About two-thirds of the way through her Analytics Experience presentation, Dr. Tricia Wang showed a video from Frans de Waal, a world-renowned primatologist. The video showed two monkeys receiving rewards for giving a researcher a rock. Each time a monkey handed over a rock it received a piece of cucumber.
In my previous blog post I have described the tension between privacy and innovation. In this post I will discuss how to deal with this and transform challenges into opportunities. The ingredients of privacy-friendly innovation Having rules and ways to enforce those rules is key. What else do we need to innovate
I recently spoke to Thomas Gartzen, managing director of the European 4.0 Transformation Center. As well as talking about innovation labs in general, we also spoke about managing change and introducing an analytical approach to organisations. Thomas, do you think we can say that all companies are now software companies?
How to extract driving patterns by using smartphone sensors -- especially the accelerometer. With accelerometer readings in hand, you can use spectral analysis and other techniques to decompose events, and machine learning to match differentiate from patterns of risky drivers.
If you were to ask Tricia Wang, PhD, about real business growth, she would tell you that it lies outside the boundaries of the known. Not everything valuable is measurable, she would say. And big data is hiding new customers in the market from you. Wang is more than just
It’s a race - on one side: fast moving technologies, new business practices, new digital behaviours, the democratisation of analytics and the massive adoption of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning technologies. On the other side: the fundamental right of individuals to protect their privacy. On one side: what we
The Insurance Distribution Directive (IDD) comes into force in October this year. It is expected to have a wide-ranging impact on the insurance industry, because it fundamentally changes the focus of insurers from products to customers. This requires a radical rethink about how insurers do business. And as companies from
Referred to as the instigator of innovation, Mick Ebeling works to expand the human possibilities of technology through his company, Not Impossible Labs, whose mission is to change the world through technology and story. Powered by a team of thinkers, doers, creators and hackers, Not Impossible Labs works on inspirational
Innovation labs have been around for a while, and they come in many shapes and sizes. Some are internal to large organisations, while others are associated with research practices. As an academic institution, RWTH Aachen University invites companies to join the European 4.0 Transformation Centre (E4TC). I caught up with Thomas Gartzen,
It is my third time in San Francisco, and again I am highly impressed by the great architecture of the Golden Gate Bridge. This time I take a boat over to Sausalito at the other side of the bay. The museum there tells about the diverse history of the village
To succeed in any data-focused hackathon, you need a robust set of tools and skills – as well as a can-do attitude. Here's what you can expect from any hackathon: Messy data. It might come from a variety of sources, and won't necessarily be organized for analytics or reporting. That's
Ich bin bereits zum dritten Mal in San Francisco und wieder mal sehr beeindruckt von der großartigen Architektur der Golden Gate Bridge. Diesmal lasse ich mich mit dem Boot nach Sausalito, auf die andere Seite der Bucht, übersetzen. Das dortige Orts-Museum erzählt dem Besucher von der bewegten Geschichte des Ortes
At the German SAS Forum, Sascha Schubert and I ran some hands-on sessions or workshops on data science and analytics. You might say that this was nothing new, but I noticed some changes from previous forums that I think may point towards wider changes in the analytical landscape. Here, then,
Get ready to have your mind blown. Whether or not you plan to attend Analytics Experience in San Diego on September 17, you'll be inspired by the speakers we have lined up to keynote the event. There's an inventor. A data scientist. A world class athlete. And a photographer. They've
Twelve years ago, in 2006, Time magazine made an interesting move in deciding on its “Person of the Year.” Instead of one of the many eminent scientists, world leaders, or stars of stage and screen who had influenced the world that year, Time chose to recognise a social phenomenon. It
Even though I’ve worked at SAS for nearly 30 years, I still get excited when great things come together for our customers! This year we are hosting the very first hackathon at our Analytics Experience conference in San Diego - the AnalyticsX Hackathon. Analytics Experience is in its third year
Wondering what makes this conference special? Over the years I’ve heard from many attendees that it’s the best way to get the most out of their analytics investments. Analytics Experience is a learning-focused conference featuring networking opportunities, training, certification exams and analytics presentations for all skill levels. #AnalyticsX will give you
Ein Mythos ist in seiner ursprünglichen Bedeutung eine Erzählung. Mythen erheben traditionell einen Anspruch auf Wahrheit. Doch gerade an diesem Wahrheitsanspruch gibt es immer wieder Kritik. Ein Beispiel: Ist es ein Mythos, dass hier in Heidelberg die älteste deutschsprachige Universität steht? Nein, es ist eine Teilwahrheit. Denn es ist die
An interview with Mathematician and UCL Lecturer Hannah Fry Love and math. You almost can’t think of two worlds further apart. However as Hannah Fry proved at the Analytics Experience in Amsterdam, mathematics can uncover the secret of a successful relationship and predict divorce. We had the opportunity to talk
What are the big guys saying and doing, and what impact could it have on you? Artificial Intelligence (AI) is a hot topic as we all know. Progress is going fast and some of it is even catching the attention of mainstream media (e.g. Google’s AlphaGo Zero (AI program) becoming the world’s best
