Machine Learning with SAS®: Special Collection
Foreword by Saratendu Sethi
Machine learning is a branch of artificial intelligence (AI) that develops algorithms that allow computers to learn from examples without being explicitly programmed. Machine learning identifies patterns in the data and models the results. These descriptive models enable a better understanding of the underlying insights the data offers. Machine learning is a powerful tool with many applications, from real-time fraud detection, the Internet of Things (IoT), recommender systems, and smart cars. It will not be long before some form of machine learning is integrated into all machines, augmenting the user experience and automatically running many processes intelligently.
SAS offers many different solutions to use machine learning to model and predict your data. The papers included in this special collection demonstrate how cutting-edge machine learning techniques can benefit your data analysis.
