he is a 5 star teacher

Comment2 wilbert, September 27, 2008 at 2:01 p.m.:

wow, a very illuminating introduction and overview for those who want to have an idea of how SMVs works.

Comment3 haytham, November 25, 2008 at 4:53 p.m.:

very very good material for presenting SVM. It is a good start for those who know a little about SVM and need to get more information step by step.

Comment4 Majdi, April 14, 2009 at 5:11 p.m.:

Very well presented and command of concept material.
Right to the point.

Comment5 almelu, August 3, 2009 at 3:21 p.m.:

just fantastic!!! very very basic, too good for those who have a little or absolutely no knowledge about SVM.

Comment6 xiaofeng dai, September 17, 2009 at 9:49 a.m.:

Wonderful! I love that! Such a simple and clear illustration of complex mathematical materials!

Comment7 Arnab Karmakar, October 13, 2009 at 5:46 a.m.:

A high class lecture. Excellent presentation.

Cool talk~~ Help me a lot in SVM!

Comment10 Mad Student, December 15, 2009 at 9:39 p.m.:

The operator should be linched. Athough the lecturer is cute, it is not enough good reason to show him most the time instead of the material.
Yeah, I know there are slides at left, but I don't like to watch it inside browser window.

Comment11 Mike Smith, April 9, 2010 at 3:13 p.m.:

A great, well explained introduction to SVM. Avoids unnecessary details about VC bounds etc, and gets onto the actual method. Very good for new students, who can then learn the detail later.

Comment12 ozcan, April 25, 2010 at 7:09 a.m.:

all very good BUT the camera should be on the slides when the guy is pointing at the equation with his stick not on his face !!!

Comment13 Vignesh, April 25, 2010 at 8:03 a.m.:
