In Eq 6.1: the objective function here is the error rate
1[.] as indicator function is one when (.) is true and zero otherwise

in my understanding we want to minimize the error, thus the indicator function should indicate error, not success
i.e. if y_n * ( dot(w, x_n) + b ) <= 0
\optimizeuc{loss:zeroone}{\vw,b}{\sum_n \Ind[y_n (\dotp{\vec w}{\vx_n}+b) <= 0]}
