SparseCategoricalCrossentropy

public class SparseCategoricalCrossentropy

Computes the crossentropy loss between labels and predictions.

Use this crossentropy loss function when there are two or more label classes. The labels are expected to be provided as integers. If you want to provide labels using one-hot representation, please use CategoricalCrossentropy loss. There should be # classes floating point values per feature for predictions and a single floating point value per feature for label .

In the snippet below, there is a single floating point value per example for labels and # classes floating pointing values per example for predictions . The shape of labels is [batch_size] and the shape of predictions is [batch_size, num_classes] .

Standalone usage:

    Operand<TFloat32> labels =
        tf.constant(new float[] {1, 2});
    Operand<TFloat32> predictions =
        tf.constant(new float[][] { {0.05f, 0.95f, 0f}, {0.1f, 0.8f, 0.1f} });
    SparseCategoricalCrossentropy sparseCCE = new SparseCategoricalCrossentropy(tf);
    Operand<TFloat32> result = sparseCCE.call(labels, predictions);
    // produces 1.177f
 

Calling with sample weight:

    Operand<TFloat32> sampleWeight = tf.constant(new float[] {0.3f, 0.7f});
    Operand<TFloat32> result = sparseCCE.call(labels, predictions, sampleWeight);
    // produces 0.814f
 

Using SUM reduction type:

    SparseCategoricalCrossentropy sparseCCE = new SparseCategoricalCrossentropy(tf, Reduction.SUM);
    Operand<TFloat32> result = sparseCCE.call(labels, predictions);
    // produces 2.354f
 

Using NONE reduction type:

    SparseCategoricalCrossentropy sparseCCE = new SparseCategoricalCrossentropy(tf, Reduction.NONE);
    Operand<TFloat32> result = sparseCCE.call(labels, predictions);
    // produces [0.0513f, 2.303f]

Public Methods

public Operand <T> call ( Operand <? extends TNumber > labels, Operand <T> predictions, Operand <T> sampleWeights)

Generates an Operand the calculates the loss.

If run in Graph mode, the computation will throw TFInvalidArgumentException if the predictions values are outside the range o [0. to 1.]. In Eager Mode, this call will throw IllegalArgumentException , if the predictions values are outside the range o [0. to 1.]

Parameters
labels the truth values or labels
predictions the predictions, values must be in the range [0. to 1.] inclusive.
sampleWeights Optional SampleWeights acts as a coefficient for the loss. If a scalar is provided, then the loss is simply scaled by the given value. If SampleWeights 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 SampleWeights vector. If the shape of SampleWeights is [batch_size, d0, .. dN-1] (or can be broadcast to this shape), then each loss element of predictions is scaled by the corresponding value of SampleWeights. (Note on dN-1: all loss functions reduce by 1 dimension, usually axis=-1.)
Returns
  • the loss
Throws
IllegalArgumentException if the predictions are outside the range [0.-1.].
