Intelligence Suite Learning Path 

Intelligence. Suites. Both are nice things to have, and Designer 2020.2 has both, but together? If you didn’t already know it, Designer 20.2 was released last week and includes a couple new tool palettes to help you unlock the valuable insight hidden away in your data. The Intelligence Suite consists of the Machine Learning and Text Mining palettes, which offer new tools and capabilities within Designer. To help you get started, Academy has created the Intelligence Suite Learning Path!

 

Explore the Assisted Modeling tool which can help you to create machine learning models based on your dataset. Get an idea of what you’ll need before using Assisted Modeling and how to configure the tool to create a variety of Python models.

 

Learn about the new tools in the Text Mining palette which make it easier to work with qualitative datasets in Designer. With 7 new tools, you can import text from pdf files, explore relationships between documents, objectively analyze the sentiment of text, and share customized word clouds to summarize your findings!

 

Category landing page - card images

@KylieF  did a great job of creating new background images for the category landing pages.
