Just watched this first lecture on this interesting subject. Very good speaker. Look forward to the rest of the series.

I've watched the first five lectures so far and am looking forward to learning how this all fits in with neural networks.

So far this course has covered a lot of ground and it's more than well worth the time needed to watch the lectures! David is an excellent communicator (I've only had to rewind a few times to pick up stuff I didn't quite get) and I'll be keeping an eye out for any other of his courses once I've finished this one.
