Course 1 Week 2 - Andew says the "J, b" instead of "w, b"?

In the gradient descent video, Andrew says at 1:45 that the height of the surface represents the value of “J, b” at a certain point. Shouldn’t he have said “w, b” instead?

Hi @paul2048 and welcome to discourse. The cost function J is a function of the weights w and bias b. You want to find a combination of w and b that minimizes J. This is what is explained in the video you referenced.
