tf.keras.metrics.CategoricalCrossentropy

Computes the crossentropy metric between the labels and predictions.

This is the crossentropy metric class to be used when there are multiple label classes (2 or more). Here we assume that labels are given as a one_hot representation. eg., When labels values are [2, 0, 1], y_true = [[0, 0, 1], [1, 0, 0], [0, 1, 0]].

name (Optional) string name of the metric instance.
dtype (Optional) data type of the metric result.
from_logits (Optional) Whether output is expected to be a logits tensor. By default, we consider that output encodes a probability distribution.
label_smoothing (Optional) Float in [0, 1]. When > 0, label values are smoothed, meaning the confidence on label values are relaxed. e.g. label_smoothing=0.2 means that we will use a value of 0.1 for label 0 and 0.9 for label 1"

Standalone usage:

# EPSILON = 1e-7, y = y_true, y` = y_pred
# y` = clip_ops.clip_by_value(output, EPSILON, 1. - EPSILON)
# y` = [[0.05, 0.95, EPSILON], [0.1, 0.8, 0.1]]
# xent = -sum(y * log(y'), axis = -1)
#      = -((log 0.95), (log 0.1))
#      = [0.051, 2.302]
# Reduced xent = (0.051 + 2.302) / 2
