Default Re: doubt in lecture 11, deterministic noise

Thanks again Professor, I have just one more question.

The two effects push overfitting in different directions, this means that if we fix a target, and expand H, the more complex H has a better ability to tackle the deterministic noise, but the complexity of the H in turn, makes for bad overfitting?
