Calculates how often predictions match one-hot labels.

You can provide logits of classes as y_pred, since argmax of logits and probabilities are same.

This metric creates two local variables, total and count that are used to compute the frequency with which y_pred matches y_true. This frequency is ultimately returned as categorical accuracy: an idempotent operation that simply divides total by count.

y_pred and y_true should be passed in as vectors of probabilities, rather than as labels. If necessary, use tf.one_hot to expand y_true as a vector.

If sample_weight is None, weights default to 1. Use sample_weight of 0 to mask values.

name (Optional) string name of the metric instance.
dtype (Optional) data type of the metric result.

Standalone usage:

m = tf.keras.metrics.CategoricalAccuracy()
m.update_state([[0, 0, 1], [0, 1, 0]], [[0.1, 0.9, 0.8],
                [0.05, 0.95, 0]])
m.update_state([[0, 0, 1], [0, 1, 0]], [[0.1, 0.9, 0.8],
                [0.05, 0.95, 0]],
               sample_weight=[0.7, 0.3])

Usage with compile() API:




View source

Resets all of the metric state variables.

This function is called between epochs/steps, when a metric is evaluated during training.


View source

Computes and returns the metric value tensor.

Result computation is an idempotent operation that simply calculates the metric value using the state variables.


View source

Accumulates metric statistics.

y_true and y_pred should have the same shape.

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 metric. If a scalar is provided, then the metric is simply scaled by the given value. If sample_weight is a tensor of size [batch_size], then the metric 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 metric element of y_pred is scaled by the corresponding value of sample_weight. (Note on dN-1: all metric functions reduce by 1 dimension, usually the last axis (-1)).
