Yes, you can use any result given in the lectures.

It seems funny to me to choose the parameters to minimize one error measure (mean square), yet evaluate {E_in} and {E_out} using another (binary classification).
Ideally, we would work exclusively with binary classification error in this case, but because of the intractability of optimization of that error, the mean-squared error is used for the optimization part.
Where everyone thinks alike, no one thinks very much
