The tech and people that are shaping SAS: relive what you learned at SASGF

SAS' Chief Technology Officer Oliver Schabenberger (@oschabenberger) has just shared an insightful blog post that recaps some of the highlights from SAS Global Forum.  It's perfect for reliving some of the best parts of the conference, and for sharing with colleagues who weren't lucky enough to be there in person.


>> Developing with passion: 4 new technologies shaping the future of SAS


In the post, you'll learn about:

  • Casey Smith ( @CaseySmith) and his passion for debugging, showing off the DATA step debugger in SAS Enterprise Guide.
  • Jorge Silva, who used factorization machines to predict the outcome of the NCAA basketball tournament -- impressively accurate.
  • Ed Summers ( @EdSummers_SAS) who delivered a powerful demonstration of SAS tech that makes it possible for blind data scientists to "see" (by hearing) their data.
  • Jerry Baulier, who showed how SAS Event Stream Processing has been baked into SAS analytics and has revolutionized that first step of analysis: data acquisition.

Read, reminisce, and share!
