It’s hard to get through a day in analytics now without hearing the words interpretability and explainability. These terms have become important in a world where machine learning and artificial intelligence (AI) models are becoming more ubiquitous. However, what do the two terms mean—and more importantly, why do they matter?
In the first of a three-part series of posts, SAS' Funda Gunes and her colleague Ricky Tharrington summarize model-agnostic model interpretability in SAS Viya.
Where in your business process can analytics and AI play a contributing role in enhancing your decision making capability? At the information interpretation stage. As a framework for understanding where analytic and AI opportunities may arise, the simple diagram below illustrates the relationships between data, information and knowledge, and how
Data scientists naturally use a lot of machine learning algorithms, which work well for detecting patterns, automating simple tasks, generalizing responses and other data heavy tasks. As a subfield of computer science, machine learning evolved from the study of pattern recognition and computational learning theory in artificial intelligence. Over time, machine learning has borrowed from many
Andy Dufresne, the wrongly convicted character in The Shawshank Redemption, provocatively asks the prison guard early in the film: “Do you trust your wife?” It’s a dead serious question regarding avoiding taxes on a recent financial windfall that had come the guard's way, and leads to events that eventually win
