End-to-End Modeling and Machine Learning with SAS Viya for Learners — Professional Development Computer Technology Workshop
The workshop will demonstrate use of SAS Visual Analytics and SAS Model Studio within the SAS Viya for Learners platform. SAS Viya for Learners is a suite of free, cloud-based software for teaching and learning data science skills available to academic faculty and students. Participants will be introduced to several methods to train supervised machine learning models to make better decisions on big data. Topics that will be demonstrated include predictive modeling techniques such as linear and logistic regression, decision tree and ensembles of trees such as forest and gradient boosting, neural networks, and support vector machines. A case study example will be used to guide participants through steps of an analysis including data preparation, model building, and model assessment. A general introduction and overview to the SAS Viya interface, including SAS Drive, will also be presented. Familiarity with predictive modeling techniques is helpful, but not necessary.
