FDP-Shaping a Data Science Curriculum: Data Management, Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence
This FDP supports developing a data science program that covers a variety of topics and enables students to acquire the skills that industry is looking for their employees to have. The FDP helps universities develop a pool of talent with the range of analytical and technology skills to work in a data-rich business environment.

1 Beginner Live Web Classroom
Forecasting Using Model Studio in SAS Viya
This course provides a hands-on tour of the forecasting functionality in Model Studio, a component of SAS Viya. The course begins by showing how to load the data into memory and visualize the time series data to be modeled. Attribute variables are introduced and implemented in the visualization. The course then covers the essentials of using pipelines for generating forecasts and selecting champion pipelines in a project. It also teaches you how to incorporate large-scale forecasting practices into the forecasting project. These include the creation of data hierarchies, forecast reconciliation, overrides, and best practices associated with forecast model selection.

Large-Scale Forecasting Using SAS Viya: A Programming Approach
This course teaches students to develop and maintain a large-scale forecasting project using SAS Visual Forecasting tools. For the course project, students build and then refine a large-scale forecasting system. Emphasis is initially on selecting appropriate methods for data creation and variable transformations, model generation, and model selection. Students are then asked to improve overall baseline forecasting performance by modifying default processes in the system.

3 Intermediate e-Learning
Time Series Feature Mining and Creation
In this course, you learn about data exploration, feature creation, and feature selection for time sequences. The topics discussed include binning, smoothing, transformations, and data set operations for time series, spectral analysis, singular spectrum analysis, distance measures, and motif analysis.
