tf.keras.metrics.SpecificityAtSensitivity

Computes best specificity where sensitivity is >= specified value.

Sensitivity measures the proportion of actual positives that are correctly identified as such (tp / (tp + fn)). Specificity measures the proportion of actual negatives that are correctly identified as such (tn / (tn + fp)).

This metric creates four local variables, true_positives, true_negatives, false_positives and false_negatives that are used to compute the specificity at the given sensitivity. The threshold for the given sensitivity value is computed and used to evaluate the corresponding specificity.

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

For additional information about specificity and sensitivity, see the following.

sensitivity A scalar value in range [0, 1].
num_thresholds (Optional) Defaults to 200. The number of thresholds to use for matching the given sensitivity.
name (Optional) string name of the metric instance.
dtype (Optional) data type of the metric result.

Standalone usage:

m = tf.keras.metrics.SpecificityAtSensitivity(0.5)
m.update_state([0, 0, 0, 1, 1], [0, 0.3, 0.8, 0.3, 0.8])
m.result().numpy()
0.66666667
m.reset_states()
m.update_state([0, 0, 0, 1, 1], [0, 0.3, 0.8, 0.3, 0.8],
               sample_weight=[1, 1, 2, 2, 2])
m.result().numpy()
0.5

Usage with compile() API:

model.compile(
    optimizer='sgd',
    loss='mse',
    metrics=[tf.keras.metrics.SpecificityAtSensitivity()])

Methods

reset_states

View source

Resets all of the metric state variables.

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

result

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.

update_state

View source

Accumulates confusion matrix statistics.

Args
y_true The ground truth values.
y_pred The predicted values.
sample_weight Optional weighting of each example. Defaults to 1. Can be a Tensor whose rank is either 0, or the same rank as y_true, and must be broadcastable to y_true.

Returns
Update op.
