SAS has announced an alliance with Microsoft to advance the integration of generative Artificial Intelligence (AI) solutions on its SAS Viya advanced analytics platform. This strategic partnership is an opportunity for companies to improve their decision-making speed by utilizing capabilities such as synthetic data, digital twin simulation, and large language models.
A comparative study published by The Futurum Group reveals that the AI and advanced analytics platform SAS Viya is faster and more cost-effective compared to commercial and open-source alternatives. This data management that SAS offers through its platform extends to various sectors, making it a valuable resource for many companies looking to digitize processes and increase efficiency.
The SAS Viya platform includes functions such as bias detection, model monitoring, governance, or accountability to demonstrate responsible AI practices. Additionally, SAS has launched internal training on responsible innovation, where its employees can learn how the software helps analysts use correct data processing methods.
Data and statistics have also been integrated almost transversally into the world of sports, where AI and machine learning technologies can find patterns and trends that coaches can use to develop better strategies for teams. As a result of these technological advancements, the French Rugby team has only lost four of their last thirty official matches.
