Technological advancements in connectivity and global positioning systems (GPS) have led to increased data tracking and related business use cases to analyze such movements. Whether analyzing a vehicle, an animal or a population's movements - each use case requires analyzing underlying spatial information. Global challenges such as virus outbreaks, deforestation
It’s safe to say that SAS Global Forum is a conference designed for users, by users. As your conference chair, I am excited by this year’s top-notch user sessions. More than 150 sessions are available, many by SAS users just like you. Wherever you work or whatever you do, you’ll
Cindy Wang's curiosity about the Mandelbrot set led her to draw one using SAS Visual Analytics.
SAS Global Forum 2021 will be jam-packed with inspiring content. Register today to ensure you don't miss a second of this year's event.
Readers of my earlier post Discover Visual Analytics Report Paths with REST APIs asked for ways to export SAS Visual Analytics (VA) report content programmatically. I know this is a topic of interest from many VA report designers. So, I think it’s better to write something on this and I
The people, the energy, the quality of the content, the demos, the networking opportunities…whew, all of these things combine to make SAS Global Forum great every year. And that is no exception this year. Preparations are in full swing for an unforgettable conference. I hope you’ve seen the notifications that

In recent years, we have seen some astronomical contracts given to professional athletes. Major League Baseball (MLB) has certainly had its share. One of its first notable “megadeals” was when Alex Rodriguez, the Seattle Mariners’ power-hitting shortstop, left the team to join the Texas Rangers in 2001. The Rangers committed
If you’re like me and the rest of the conference team, you’ve probably attended more virtual events this year than you ever thought possible. You can see the general evolution of virtual events by watching the early ones from April or May and compare them to the recent ones. We
Conversational AI can offer a way to provide that always-on 24/7, fast, convenient experience that can go anywhere (phone, computer smart speakers, even your car). It can provide a human-like experience through real-time, personalized interaction with AI running in the background. This technology is being applied across many industries for a variety of use cases (both customer-facing and for internal use).
Public and private schools are struggling to figure out how to bring face-to-face instruction to students during this pandemic. Health risks to students and teachers, parents struggling with child-care options and/or support for virtual learning, and schools’ capacities and budget limitations make this problem a severe logistical challenge. Schools need
[Editor's note: This post was co-authored with Fritz Lehman, COO of Zencos] In 1976, the blockbuster movie Jaws was the number one grossing film. Why? Because it had a great villain – the great white shark. The movie told a vivid (and all too familiar) story about plans gone awry
Discovery is an important part of setting up your analysis for success – essentially it prevents you from plunging into a haystack to try to find that elusive needle, and rather, helps you organize the haystack into neater, compact organized bales that you can navigate with ease. Proper discovery can help you more efficiently find patterns in your data set.
Everyone knows that SAS has been helping programmers and coders build complex machine learning models and solve complex business problems for many years, but did you know that you can also now build machines learning models without a single line of code using SAS Viya? SAS has been helping programmers
[Nabaruna Karmakar was coauthor of this post] A study was conducted at the University of Denver on The Economic Impacts of the Austin, Texas "No Kill" Resolution. The study found great value in creating an animal welfare-focused community. It highlighted the benefits of economic growth due to an increased need in
Unlocking the potential of your unstructured text data can lead to great business outcomes but the prospect of starting a new or enhancing your existing Natural Language Processing (NLP) program can feel overwhelming because of the inherently unique (and sometimes messy) nature of human language. Text data doesn’t fit neatly into rows or columns the way that structured data does, which can make it seem more complex to work with. Conversations and written language range from objective statements to subjective perspectives and opinions. The same sentence, depending on its intent and the nuances in how it's said, can have a positive, negative, or neutral sentiment. To get us started, we'll share different types of NLP models used to analyze unstructured data with a focus on the hybrid approach.
Remember back to your early school days, singing with all your classmates “If you’re happy and you know it clap your hands!” and then we’d all clap our hands. Being happy back then was so simple. Today, it’s hard to get away from all the negative headlines of 2020! It’s
Como integrar modelos hierárquicos de séries temporais desenvolvidos em R ao SAS Visual Forecasting analisando as diferentes estratégias? O objetivo deste artigo é apresentar como podemos executar modelos de séries temporais, que foram desenvolvidos no R, no SAS Visual Forecasting, podendo, assim, paralelizar e acelerar o processamento do código R.
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.
Let's learn how to prompt for a date range in a SAS Visual Analytics report using control objects such as sliders, drop-down lists, and text input.
Human brains are hardwired to build maps. We navigate the world around us through the creation of mental maps. Maps that assemble abstract landmarks and build spatial relationships between them. If you think about how you navigate through your house, even in the dark, it is quite amazing. Maps have
How have healthcare providers and governmental agencies predicted the fast-changing, potentially exponential increase in the need for medical services and equipment through the various stages of the COVID-19 pandemic? Mathematical techniques that attempt to model and understand the likely spread of the disease have been instrumental. The SEIR model is
질병 확산을 억제하고 경제적 영향을 최소화하기 위해서는 인구가 어떻게 이동하는지 분석하고, 지역 내 접촉자를 추적하여 적절한 의사결정을 해야 합니다. 이번 SGF 시리즈에서는 인구 이동 분석과 접촉자 추적 등 SAS 분석 기술이 어떻게 팬데믹 극복을 위한 의사결정을 지원하는지에 대한 SAS 짐굿나잇 회장과 스티브 베넷 글로벌 정부기관 프랙티스 부문 이사의 세션을 소개합니다.
Adverse outcomes, and the rapid spread of COVID-19, have accelerated research on all aspects of the disease. You may have found it overwhelming, and very time-consuming, to find relevant and specialized insights in all the scientific literature out there. To aid researchers in quickly identifying relevant literature about key topics
