The specialist in the field of analytics and artificial intelligence SAS has further expanded the functionality of its own analytics platform SAS Platform. The specialist announced this during his annual event SAS Global Forum in Dallas these days. The platform is also made more suitable for every interested end user and not only for data scientists, according to the company.

The analytics and artificial intelligence specialist claims to be improving its platform to enable even more companies and organisations to get the most out of their data and grow further.

In addition, the added functionality should also make it easier for nondata specialists to use analytics and artificial intelligence in order to be able to make sense of the amount of data they have at their disposal.

Simpler tools

With the latest release of its platform, SAS improves its automated, simple and powerful analytics tools in particular. This is done with the aid of new technology in the field of artificial intelligence, especially in the field of machine learning, natural language processing (NLP) and other technologies that are intended to support artificial intelligence.

Additional investments will also be made, based on the previously announced investment of 1 billion dollars, in computer vision. This should make it easier for end users of the SAS Platform to use visualized data to make business decisions.

Automatic comparison of analytical models

With the improvements now made, the platform ensures that thousands of different analytical models are automatically compared. The best ones are then selected to solve a particular business problem.

With natural language generation (NLG), the best analytical results are then presented in normal language. This allows any end user to interpret them and make a well-documented report from them for faster decision making.

Easier use of artificial intelligence

SAS has also announced that it now wants to make artificial intelligence available to everyone via its platform. To this end, the analytics and AI specialist has implemented a large number of additional changes, such as improved explanations of how a particular analysis was created, improved interpretations and explanations of artificial intelligence models, improved decision capabilities, open APIs and more valuable content.
