SAS Tutorial | Machine Learning: A Coding Example in SAS

In this SAS How To Tutorial, Christa Cody shows how to create machine learning models using SAS Viya. First, you will be shown a coding example in SAS of supervised learning in SAS Studio which is great for those who are familiar with SAS programming. She will then create the same model using Model Studio machine learning pipelines. Christa’s approach may be more useful for someone not interested in programming the model themselves, but who still wants to have control over hyperparameters.

After watching this video and see the coding examples, you will have a better understanding of how to build machine learning models in SAS. If you are interested Machine Learning Fundamentals or why Christa is doing certain machine learning tasks, check out this SAS Tutorial | Machine Learning Fundamentals video (https://youtu.be/8k2MbSljPes).
