End-to-End Modeling and Machine Learning in SAS Viya for Learners
Effective predictive modeling projects follow the analytics life cycle, from data and discovery to deployment and decisions. SAS Viya provides the capability to perform all these steps from one graphical user interface, making the transition between stages of the analytics life cycle seamless.
In this workshop, you will load data into memory, prepare input variables for modeling and build complex analytics pipelines to demonstrate powerful machine learning models. We’ll then show you how to deploy any model with one click. Then you can save and package the best performing model for deployment while keeping the ability to retrain it on new data – all from the same shared interface.
