The second half of the course will survey tools for handling structured data (regular expressions, HTML/JSON, databases), data visualization, numerical and symbolic computing, interacting with the UNIX/Linux command line, and large-scale distributed computing. Several modern inferential techniques arising in machine learning and applied statistics will be reviewed.
