SAS Visual Data Mining and Machine Learning

Title Level Training Formats
SAS Viya and Python Integration for Machine Learning
In this course, you learn to use the Python API to take control of SAS Cloud Analytic Services (CAS) actions from Jupyter Notebook. You learn to upload data into the in-memory distributed environment, analyze data, and create predictive models in CAS using familiar Python functionality via the SWAT (SAS Wrapper for Analytics Transfer) package. You then learn to download results to the client and use native Python syntax to compare models.

Deep Learning Using SAS Software
This course introduces the pivotal components of deep learning. You learn how to build deep feedforward, convolutional, recurrent networks, and variants of denoising autoencoders. The neural networks are used to solve problems that include traditional classification, image classification, and sequence-dependent outcomes. The course contains a healthy mix of theory and application. Hands-on demonstration and practice problems are included to reinforce key concepts. Hyperparameter search methods are described and demonstrated to find an optimal set of deep learning models. Transfer learning is covered because the emergence of this field has shown promise in deep learning. Lastly, you learn how to customize a SAS deep learning model to research new areas of deep learning.

Tree-Based Machine Learning Methods in SAS Viya
Decision trees and tree-based ensembles are supervised learning models used for problems involving classification and regression. This course covers everything from using a single tree to more advanced bagging and boosting ensemble methods in SAS Viya. The course includes discussions of tree-structured predictive models and the methodology for growing, pruning, and assessing decision trees, forest and gradient boosting models. The course also explains isolation forest (an unsupervised learning algorithm for anomaly detection), deep forest (an alternative for neural network deep learning), and Poisson and Tweedy gradient boosted regression trees. In addition, many of the auxiliary uses of trees, such as exploratory data analysis, dimension reduction, and missing value imputation, are examined, and running open source in SAS and running SAS in open source are demonstrated.
