SAS Viya: A Modern Scalable and Open Platform for Artificial Intelligence (306389)


*Wayne Thompson, SAS 

Keywords: SAS Viya, artificial intelligence, cloud computing, open source, deep learning

SAS Viya is cloud-enabled, in-memory analytics engine that provides quick, accurate, and reliable analytical insights. It is perfect for analytics, data visualization, and rapid deployment of machine learning. Analysts can use open-source tools like Python, R, Java, and REST. I’ll discuss several available algorithms and focus on modern machine learning algorithms like boosting models, factorization machines, and hyperparameter tuning. Emphasis is placed on building end-to-end machine learning pipelines from a visual and a programming approach. I’ll end with a demo of training a CNN for object detection and deploying through event steam processing.
