SAS has released its new SAS Visual Data Mining and Machine Learning software to address the need for smarter analytics.
Advanced analytics offer insight to businesses, but machine learning and deep learning algorithms take it deeper, revealing insights that were previously out of reach. For example, machine learning use can include facial recognition in security systems, speech recognition in customer service applications, accurate product recommendations in e-commerce, self-driving cars and medical diagnostics.
“SAS Data Mining and Machine Learning is built on the company’s solid expertise and reputation of delivering scalable and adaptable analytics that solve real business problems and yield measurable business value,” said Jonathan Wexler, SAS Analytics product manager. “This software helps provide positive outcomes to increase profitability, better understand customer behavior and decrease the cost of doing business.”
SAS Visual Data Mining and Machine Learning is one of the initial analytics applications on the SAS Viya platform. SAS Viya is an innovative analytics environment designed for use in the cloud that provides the power of SAS Analytics through SAS interfaces as well as open APIs for Python, Lua, Java and REST.
The new analytics offerings for SAS Viya are structured for a diverse range of users, while maintaining consistency and manageability. In addition to SAS Visual Data Mining and Machine Learning for data scientists, the Viya family will include SAS Visual Analytics for business analysts and SAS Visual Statistics, aimed at experienced statistical users.
