Saddle up for advanced analytics innovation at SAS Global Forum, April 28 – May 1 in Dallas

Register now for the world’s biggest analytics conference, with distinct programs for data scientists, executives, business users and students

They say everything is bigger in Texas, and Dallas is no exception. From the world’s tallest cowboy (the 55-foot “Big Tex” statue at the State Fairgrounds) to the Dallas Cowboys’ football stadium (big enough to fit the Statue of Liberty inside), Dallas is called “Big D” for a reason.

What better place than Dallas to talk about the other Big D – big data – and the advanced analytics that drive value from it? With more than 30,000 attendees on-site and online, SAS® Global Forum is the world’s largest analytics conference. Happening April 28 through May 1 at the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center, the event is a roundup of trends in big data analytics, artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning, data management, the Internet of Things (IoT) and more from SAS, the leader in analytics, and business leaders from many industries. 

Analytics in action: inform, inspire, transform

Data scientists, analytics professionals, business and technology executives and more will learn through hundreds of workshops, presentations, demos and networking opportunities; exchange ideas with experts and peers; and explore new ways to extract big value from big data. SAS users and partners will share stories of analytics fighting human trafficking, improving rural health care, deterring prescription fraud, strengthening customer loyalty and much more. 

The “Technology Connection” session on April 29 will feature a wide-ranging exploration of SAS technology and innovation via brief demos and customer stories of analytics in action. Attendees will learn how computer vision and AI technologies are being applied to medical images to treat cancer; how mobile technologies are providing data analytics on the move; and how AI interpretability delivers analytics for everyone, from business users to data scientists.
