How to Create a Self-similar Christmas Tree Using SAS

The season of celebration is here! Christmas is just around the corner. And here is a beautiful self-similar Christmas tree that was created using SAS with the help of two fascinating features – matrix computations and ODS statistical graphics.

Experiencing self-similarity in Kronecker products

You might have come across blogposts highlighting how repeated Kronecker product of a binary matrix ushers us into self-similar structures. But this time, we are taking special care in introducing self-similarity in Kronecker products – like, if M is a binary matrix then Kronecker product happens to be M@M, which is a block matrix in which each 1 inside the original matrix is replaced by a copy of M, and each O is replaced with a zero block. In this blog, @ stands for the Kronecker product (or direct product) operator implemented in IML/SAS software).

Researchers Peer into the Hood of Computational Linguistics

Researchers Peer into the Hood of Computational Linguistics

 

To start, give a look at these two sentences:

“This house is in a detestable location.”

“This detestable house is in this location.”

 

Well, these two sentences have virtually similar words, but owing to their structure, they exude entirely two different meanings. Understanding the true meaning of the sentences just by having a look at the words was something only reserved for the human intelligence, until now. Breakthroughs in Natural Language Processing (NLP), also known as computational linguistics have blazed a trail in this domain, which was once dominated by humans.

Wake Up to a World of Data Possibilities: With SAS Certification

Of late, in spite of trending insurgence of cutting edge technology tools, SAS remains one of the most popular, in-demand programming languages for advanced analytics. It’s been more than two decades, yet it didn’t lose its importance in ruling the data science market. This shows how flexible this pioneering analytics tool is, and how adaptable it is in its functionality that it stood strong through the test of time and development.

When Machines Do Everything – How to Survive?

In the coming years, jobs and businesses are going to be impacted; reason AI. Today’s generation is very much concerned about how the bots will consume everything; from jobs to skills, the smart machines will spare nothing! It is true that machines are going to replace man-powered jobs – by using robots, mundane jobs can be performed in a flick of an eye freeing people working in bigger organisations to innovate and succeed.

How to Simulate Multiple Samples From a Linear Regression Model

In this blog post, we will learn how to simulate multiple samples efficiently. In order to keep the discussion, easy we have simulated a single sample with ‘n’ number of observations, and ‘p’ amount of variables. But in order to use the Monte Carlo method to approximate the distribution sampling of statistics, one needs to simulate many specimens with the same regression model.

The data steps in SAS in  most blogs have 4 steps mentioned for so. However, to simulate multiple samples, put DO loop around these steps that will generate, the error term and the response variable for very observation made in the model.

How to Read Data With SAS JSON Libname Engine

To those of you unaware of the developments in the SAS world, JSON is the new XML and the number of users who need to access JSON has really grown in the recent times. This is mainly due to proliferation of REST-based APIs and other web services. A good reason for JSON being so popular is the fact that it is structured data in the format of text. We have been capable of offering simple parsing techniques, which make use of data step and most recently PROC DS2. Now with the SAS 9.4 and Maintenance 4 we now have a built-in libname engine for the JSON XML.
