Metric Ops

tf.contrib.metrics.streaming_accuracy(predictions, labels, weights=None, metrics_collections=None, updates_collections=None, name=None)

Calculates how often predictions matches labels.

The streaming_accuracy function creates two local variables, total and count that are used to compute the frequency with which predictions matches labels. This frequency is ultimately returned as accuracy: an idempotent operation that simply divides total by count.

For estimation of the metric over a stream of data, the function creates an update_op operation that updates these variables and returns the accuracy. Internally, an is_correct operation computes a Tensor with elements 1.0 where the corresponding elements of predictions and labels match and 0.0 otherwise. Then update_op increments total with the reduced sum of the product of weights and is_correct, and it increments count with the reduced sum of weights.

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

Args:
  • predictions: The predicted values, a Tensor of any shape.
  • labels: The ground truth values, a Tensor whose shape matches predictions.
  • weights: An optional Tensor whose shape is broadcastable to predictions.
  • metrics_collections: An optional list of collections that accuracy should be added to.
  • updates_collections: An optional list of collections that update_op should be added to.
  • name: An optional variable_scope name.
Returns:
  • accuracy: A tensor representing the accuracy, the value of total divided by count.
  • update_op: An operation that increments the total and count variables appropriately and whose value matches accuracy.
Raises:
  • ValueError: If predictions and labels have mismatched shapes, or if weights is not None and its shape doesn't match predictions, or if either metrics_collections or updates_collections are not a list or tuple.

The streaming_auc function creates four local variables, true_positives, true_negatives, false_positives and false_negatives that are used to compute the AUC. To discretize the AUC curve, a linearly spaced set of thresholds is used to compute pairs of recall and precision values. The area under the ROC-curve is therefore computed using the height of the recall values by the false positive rate, while the area under the PR-curve is the computed using the height of the precision values by the recall.

This value is ultimately returned as auc, an idempotent operation that computes the area under a discretized curve of precision versus recall values (computed using the afformentioned variables). The num_thresholds variable controls the degree of discretization with larger numbers of thresholds more closely approximating the true AUC.

For estimation of the metric over a stream of data, the function creates an update_op operation that updates these variables and returns the recall_at_<k>. Internally, an in_top_k operation computes a Tensor with shape [batch_size] whose elements indicate whether or not the corresponding label is in the top k predictions.

The product-moment correlation ultimately returned is an idempotent operation cov(predictions, labels) / sqrt(var(predictions) * var(labels)). To facilitate correlation computation across multiple batches, the function groups the update_ops of the underlying streaming_covariance and returns an update_op.

tf.contrib.metrics.streaming_sparse_precision_at_k(*args, **kwargs)

Computes precision@k of the predictions with respect to sparse labels. (deprecated arguments)

SOME ARGUMENTS ARE DEPRECATED. They will be removed after 2016-10-19. Instructions for updating: ignore_mask is being deprecated. Instead use weights with values 0.0 and 1.0 to mask values. For example, weights=tf.logical_not(mask).

If class_id is specified, we calculate precision by considering only the entries in the batch for which class_id is in the top-k highest predictions, and computing the fraction of them for which class_id is indeed a correct label. If class_id is not specified, we'll calculate precision as how often on average a class among the top-k classes with the highest predicted values of a batch entry is correct and can be found in the label for that entry.

streaming_sparse_precision_at_k creates two local variables, true_positive_at_<k> and false_positive_at_<k>, that are used to compute the precision@k frequency. This frequency is ultimately returned as precision_at_<k>: an idempotent operation that simply divides true_positive_at_<k> by total (true_positive_at_<k> + false_positive_at_<k>).

For estimation of the metric over a stream of data, the function creates an update_op operation that updates these variables and returns the precision_at_<k>. Internally, a top_k operation computes a Tensor indicating the top k predictions. Set operations applied to top_k and labels calculate the true positives and false positives weighted by weights. Then update_op increments true_positive_at_<k> and false_positive_at_<k> using these values.

If weights is None, weights default to 1. Use weights of 0 to mask values. Alternatively, if ignore_mask is not None, then mask values where ignore_mask is True.

Args: predictions: Float Tensor with shape [D1, ... DN, num_classes] where N >= 1. Commonly, N=1 and predictions has shape [batch size, num_classes]. The final dimension contains the logit values for each class. [D1, ... DN] must match labels. labels: int64 Tensor or SparseTensor with shape [D1, ... DN, num_labels], where N >= 1 and num_labels is the number of target classes for the associated prediction. Commonly, N=1 and labels has shape [batch_size, num_labels]. [D1, ... DN] must match predictions_idx. Values should be in range [0, num_classes], where num_classes is the last dimension of predictions. k: Integer, k for @k metric. class_id: Integer class ID for which we want binary metrics. This should be in range [0, num_classes], where num_classes is the last dimension of predictions. ignore_mask: An optional, bool Tensor whose shape is broadcastable to the the first [D1, ... DN] dimensions of predictions and labels. weights: An optional Tensor whose shape is broadcastable to the the first [D1, ... DN] dimensions of predictions and labels. metrics_collections: An optional list of collections that values should be added to. updates_collections: An optional list of collections that updates should be added to. name: Name of new update operation, and namespace for other dependant ops.

Returns: precision: Scalar float64 Tensor with the value of true_positives divided by the sum of true_positives and false_positives. update_op: Operation that increments true_positives and false_positives variables appropriately, and whose value matches precision.

Raises: ValueError: If ignore_mask is not None and its shape doesn't match predictions, or if weights is not None and its shape doesn't match predictions, or if either metrics_collections or updates_collections are not a list or tuple.


tf.contrib.metrics.streaming_sparse_recall_at_k(*args, **kwargs)

Computes recall@k of the predictions with respect to sparse labels. (deprecated arguments)

SOME ARGUMENTS ARE DEPRECATED. They will be removed after 2016-10-19. Instructions for updating: ignore_mask is being deprecated. Instead use weights with values 0.0 and 1.0 to mask values. For example, weights=tf.logical_not(mask).

If class_id is specified, we calculate recall by considering only the entries in the batch for which class_id is in the label, and computing the fraction of them for which class_id is in the top-k predictions. If class_id is not specified, we'll calculate recall as how often on average a class among the labels of a batch entry is in the top-k predictions.

streaming_sparse_recall_at_k creates two local variables, true_positive_at_<k> and false_negative_at_<k>, that are used to compute the recall_at_k frequency. This frequency is ultimately returned as recall_at_<k>: an idempotent operation that simply divides true_positive_at_<k> by total (true_positive_at_<k> + recall_at_<k>).

For estimation of the metric over a stream of data, the function creates an update_op operation that updates these variables and returns the recall_at_<k>. Internally, a top_k operation computes a Tensor indicating the top k predictions. Set operations applied to top_k and labels calculate the true positives and false negatives weighted by weights. Then update_op increments true_positive_at_<k> and false_negative_at_<k> using these values.

If weights is None, weights default to 1. Use weights of 0 to mask values. Alternatively, if ignore_mask is not None, then mask values where ignore_mask is True.

DN] dimensions of predictions and labels. metrics_collections: An optional list of collections that values should be added to. updates_collections: An optional list of collections that updates should be added to. name: Name of new update operation, and namespace for other dependant ops.

Returns: recall: Scalar float64 Tensor with the value of true_positives divided by the sum of true_positives and false_negatives. update_op: Operation that increments true_positives and false_negatives variables appropriately, and whose value matches recall.

Raises: ValueError: If ignore_mask is not None and its shape doesn't match predictions, or if weights is not None and its shape doesn't match predictions, or if either metrics_collections or updates_collections are not a list or tuple.


tf.contrib.metrics.streaming_specificity_at_sensitivity(predictions, labels, sensitivity, weights=None, num_thresholds=200, metrics_collections=None, updates_collections=None, name=None)

Computes the the specificity at a given sensitivity.

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

For estimation of the metric over a stream of data, the function creates an update_op operation that updates these variables and returns the specificity. update_op increments the true_positives, true_negatives, false_positives and false_negatives counts with the weight of each case found in the predictions and labels.

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

For additional information about specificity and sensitivity, see the following: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sensitivity_and_specificity

Args:
  • predictions: A floating point Tensor of arbitrary shape and whose values are in the range [0, 1].
  • labels: A bool Tensor whose shape matches predictions.
  • sensitivity: A scalar value in range [0, 1].
  • weights: An optional Tensor whose shape is broadcastable to predictions.
  • num_thresholds: The number of thresholds to use for matching the given sensitivity.
  • metrics_collections: An optional list of collections that specificity should be added to.
  • updates_collections: An optional list of collections that update_op should be added to.
  • name: An optional variable_scope name.
Returns:
  • specificity: A scalar tensor representing the specificity at the given specificity value.
  • update_op: An operation that increments the true_positives, true_negatives, false_positives and false_negatives variables appropriately and whose value matches specificity.
Raises:
  • ValueError: If predictions and labels have mismatched shapes, if weights is not None and its shape doesn't match predictions, or if sensitivity is not between 0 and 1, or if either metrics_collections or updates_collections are not a list or tuple.

tf.contrib.metrics.auc_using_histogram(boolean_labels, scores, score_range, nbins=100, collections=None, check_shape=True, name=None)

AUC computed by maintaining histograms.

Rather than computing AUC directly, this Op maintains Variables containing histograms of the scores associated with True and False labels. By comparing these the AUC is generated, with some discretization error. See: "Efficient AUC Learning Curve Calculation" by Bouckaert.

This AUC Op updates in O(batch_size + nbins) time and works well even with large class imbalance. The accuracy is limited by discretization error due to finite number of bins. If scores are concentrated in a fewer bins, accuracy is lower. If this is a concern, we recommend trying different numbers of bins and comparing results.

Args:
  • boolean_labels: 1-D boolean Tensor. Entry is True if the corresponding record is in class.
  • scores: 1-D numeric Tensor, same shape as boolean_labels.
  • score_range: Tensor of shape [2], same dtype as scores. The min/max values of score that we expect. Scores outside range will be clipped.
  • nbins: Integer number of bins to use. Accuracy strictly increases as the number of bins increases.
  • collections: List of graph collections keys. Internal histogram Variables are added to these collections. Defaults to [GraphKeys.LOCAL_VARIABLES].
  • check_shape: Boolean. If True, do a runtime shape check on the scores and labels.
  • name: A name for this Op. Defaults to "auc_using_histogram".
Returns:
  • auc: float32 scalar Tensor. Fetching this converts internal histograms to auc value.
  • update_op: Op, when run, updates internal histograms.

tf.contrib.metrics.accuracy(predictions, labels, weights=None)

Computes the percentage of times that predictions matches labels.

Args:
  • predictions: the predicted values, a Tensor whose dtype and shape matches 'labels'.
  • labels: the ground truth values, a Tensor of any shape and bool, integer, or string dtype.
  • weights: None or Tensor of float values to reweight the accuracy.
Returns:

Accuracy Tensor.

Raises:
  • ValueError: if dtypes don't match or if dtype is not bool, integer, or string.

tf.contrib.metrics.confusion_matrix(predictions, labels, num_classes=None, dtype=tf.int32, name=None, weights=None)

Computes the confusion matrix from predictions and labels.

Calculate the Confusion Matrix for a pair of prediction and label 1-D int arrays.

Considering a prediction array such as: [1, 2, 3] And a label array such as: [2, 2, 3]

The confusion matrix returned would be the following one:
[[0, 0, 0]
 [0, 1, 0]
 [0, 1, 0]
 [0, 0, 1]]

If weights is not None, then the confusion matrix elements are the corresponding weights elements.

Where the matrix rows represent the prediction labels and the columns represents the real labels. The confusion matrix is always a 2-D array of shape [n, n], where n is the number of valid labels for a given classification task. Both prediction and labels must be 1-D arrays of the same shape in order for this function to work.

Args:
  • predictions: A 1-D array represeting the predictions for a given classification.
  • labels: A 1-D represeting the real labels for the classification task.
  • num_classes: The possible number of labels the classification task can have. If this value is not provided, it will be calculated using both predictions and labels array.
  • dtype: Data type of the confusion matrix.
  • name: Scope name.
  • weights: An optional Tensor whose shape matches predictions.
Returns:

A k X k matrix represeting the confusion matrix, where k is the number of possible labels in the classification task.

Raises:
  • ValueError: If both predictions and labels are not 1-D vectors and have mismatched shapes, or if weights is not None and its shape doesn't match predictions.

tf.contrib.metrics.aggregate_metrics(*value_update_tuples)

Aggregates the metric value tensors and update ops into two lists.

Args:
  • *value_update_tuples: a variable number of tuples, each of which contain the pair of (value_tensor, update_op) from a streaming metric.
Returns:

a list of value tensors and a list of update ops.

Raises:
  • ValueError: if value_update_tuples is empty.

tf.contrib.metrics.aggregate_metric_map(names_to_tuples)

Aggregates the metric names to tuple dictionary.

This function is useful for pairing metric names with their associated value and update ops when the list of metrics is long. For example:

metrics_to_values, metrics_to_updates = slim.metrics.aggregate_metric_map({ 'Mean Absolute Error': new_slim.metrics.streaming_mean_absolute_error( predictions, labels, weights), 'Mean Relative Error': new_slim.metrics.streaming_mean_relative_error( predictions, labels, labels, weights), 'RMSE Linear': new_slim.metrics.streaming_root_mean_squared_error( predictions, labels, weights), 'RMSE Log': new_slim.metrics.streaming_root_mean_squared_error( predictions, labels, weights), })

Args:
  • names_to_tuples: a map of metric names to tuples, each of which contain the pair of (value_tensor, update_op) from a streaming metric.
Returns:

A dictionary from metric names to value ops and a dictionary from metric names to update ops.
