Class LiftedStructLoss

Computes the lifted structured loss.

Aliases:

The loss encourages the positive distances (between a pair of embeddings with the same labels) to be smaller than any negative distances (between a pair of embeddings with different labels) in the mini-batch in a way that is differentiable with respect to the embedding vectors. See: https://arxiv.org/abs/1511.06452.

Args:

  • margin: Float, margin term in the loss definition.
  • name: Optional name for the op.

__init__(
    margin=1.0,
    name=None
)

Initialize self. See help(type(self)) for accurate signature.

Methods

__call__

__call__(
    y_true,
    y_pred,
    sample_weight=None
)

Invokes the Loss instance.

Args:

  • y_true: Ground truth values. shape = [batch_size, d0, .. dN]
  • y_pred: The predicted values. shape = [batch_size, d0, .. dN]
  • sample_weight: Optional sample_weight acts as a coefficient for the loss. If a scalar is provided, then the loss is simply scaled by the given value. If sample_weight is a tensor of size [batch_size], then the total loss for each sample of the batch is rescaled by the corresponding element in the sample_weight vector. If the shape of sample_weight is [batch_size, d0, .. dN-1] (or can be broadcasted to this shape), then each loss element of y_pred is scaled by the corresponding value of sample_weight. (Note ondN-1: all loss functions reduce by 1 dimension, usually axis=-1.)

Returns:

Weighted loss float Tensor. If reduction is NONE, this has shape [batch_size, d0, .. dN-1]; otherwise, it is scalar. (Note dN-1 because all loss functions reduce by 1 dimension, usually axis=-1.)

Raises:

  • ValueError: If the shape of sample_weight is invalid.

from_config

from_config(
    cls,
    config
)

Instantiates a Loss from its config (output of get_config()).

Args:

  • config: Output of get_config().

Returns:

A Loss instance.
