Exploring New Avenues of Alliance Between Microsoft and Artificial Intelligence

Exploring-new-avenues-of-alliance-between-Microsoft-and-Artificial-Intelligence

 

Artificial Intelligence is perhaps the ‘trending’ term of the technological paradigm. Microsoft is quite a honcho in the arena of Artificial Intelligence. This statement is further enhanced by Andrew Shuman, the Corporate VP for Microsoft AI and research Group. At the Microsoft’s annual Build Developer’s conference, he regarded “If I think about the kind of AI revolution that’s going on, it’s very much created by new increase in data being available and cloud service being able to run millions of computations”.

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 Code Colour Values Within SAS Enterprise Guide

Colours are amazing, they are the subject of many romantic poems and songs, they are what can alter our moods drastically, they are these magical wavelengths that transform into incredible visions for our eyes.

Some feel warm, while others feel cool, some make us happy while others make us sad… but as colours are so important, how to add these values within the SAS Enterprise Guide?

How to Use PUT and %PUT Statements in SAS: 6 Tips

The PUT statement in SAS for programmers who have completed a SAS certification in the DATA step and the %PUT macro statements are highly useful statements, which will help to enable you to display the values of variables and macro variables, respectively.

And almost by default the output will appear in the SAS logs. In this article we will share a few tips which will allow you to make use of these statements more efficiently.

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.

Celebrate Christmas in Data Analyst Style With SAS!

Christmas is just at the end of this week, so we at team DexLab decided to help our dear readers who love some data-wizardry, with some SAS magic! You can choose to flaunt your extra SAS knowledge to your peer groups with the below described SAS program.

Celebrate Christmas in Data Analyst Style With SAS!

We are taking things a tad backwards by trying to, almost idiosyncratically complicate things that are otherwise simple. After all some say, a job of a data analyst is to do so! However, be it stupid or unnecessary this is definitely by far the coolest way to wish Merry Christmas, in data-analyst style.

How to Append Data to Add Markers to SAS Graphs

Would you like to create customized SAS graphs with the use of PROC SGPLOT and other ODS graphic procedures? Then an essential skill that you must learn is to know how to join, merge, concentrate and append SAS data sets, which arise from a variety of sources. The SG procedures, which stand for SAS statistical graphic procedures, enable users to overlay different kinds of customized curves, bars and markers. But the SG procedures do expect all the data for a graph to be in one single set of data. Thus, it often becomes necessary to append two or more sets of data before one can create a complex graph.

In this blog post, we will discuss two ways in which we can combine data sets in order to create ODS graphics. An alternative option is to use the SG annotation facility, which will add extra curves and markers to the graph. We mostly recommend the use of the techniques that are given in this article for simple features and reserve annotations when adding highly complex yet non-standard features.

The Most Interesting Scientific Fact About Numbers a Data Scientist can Know

Are you a non-data person? Do you think numbers are unnecessarily complex and are better to stay away from? When asked to calculations do you feel a little of sleepiness setting in? Then this would come as a surprise to you that our brains originally think in numbers. To be more precise, our brains actually think in the Logarithm Scale instead of thinking in the additive scale. To put it simply our brains understand better in terms of proportions than in differences.

So, how would our brains approach differences in numbers? We think almost automatically that the difference between 1 and 2 is greater than the difference between 3 and 2 and so forth.

Here in this picture the first diagram is of the Logarithmic scale while the second one is of the additive scale. Both these scales have their utility in real life situations but while our perception bias associated with the Logarithmic scale often create some problems.
