Network Analysis and Network Optimization in SAS® Viya®
This course provides a set of network analysis (graph theory) and network optimization solutions using the NETWORK and OPTNETWORK procedures in SAS Viya. Real-world applications are emphasized for each algorithm introduced in this course, including using network analysis as a stand-alone unsupervised learning technique, as well as incorporating network analysis and optimization to augment supervised learning techniques to improve machine learning model performance through input/feature creation.
The self-study e-learning includes:
Who should attendAnyone interested in learning to incorporate network analysis and network optimization to provide solutions and solve real-world business challenges, including data scientists, business analysts, statisticians, and other quantitative professionals. Managers, directors, and leaders with a quantitative background are also encouraged to attend to learn how network analysis and optimization can be integrated into a broader portfolio of data science and machine learning applications.
In order to complete practices with classroom software, attendees should have basic familiarity with statistics and mathematical concepts and be comfortable programming in SAS using DATA steps. Experience using macros is helpful, but not required.
This course addresses SAS Viya software.
