What is automated prediction? Automated prediction, in less than a minute, runs several analytic models (such as decision trees, gradient boosting, and logistic and linear regression) on a specific variable of your choice. Most of the remaining variables in your dataset are automatically analyzed as factors that might influence your specified variable. They are called underlying factors. SAS then chooses the one model (champion model) that most accurately predicts your target variable. The model prediction and the underlying factors are then displayed. You can adjust the values of the underlying factors to determine how the model prediction changes with each adjustment.

In the first of three posts on using automated analysis with SAS Visual Analytics, we explored a typical visualization designed to give telco customer care workers guidance on customers most receptive to upgrade their plans. While the analysis provided some insight, it lacked analytical depth -- and that increases the risk of wasting time, energy and
You're the operations director for a major telco's contact center. Your customer-care workers enjoy solving problems. Turning irate callers into fans makes their day. They also hate flying blind. They've been begging you for deeper insight into customer data to better serve their callers. They want to know which customers
What’s new and what’s on the horizon for machine learning and analytics? We asked Kirk Borne, Principal Data Scientist and Executive Advisor at Booz Allen Hamilton, what machine learning technologies he’s watching. He focused his reply on applications, not algorithms. “When I think about what’s new and coming up, I
