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]].


m = tf.keras.metrics.CategoricalCrossentropy()
m.update_state([[0, 1, 0], [0, 0, 1]],
               [[0.05, 0.95, 0], [0.1, 0.8, 0.1]])

# 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

print('Final result: ', m.result().numpy())  # Final result: 1.176

Usage with tf.keras API:

model = tf.keras.Model(inputs, outputs)

name (Optional) string name of the metric instance.
dtype (Optional) data type of the metric result.
from_logits (Optional ) Whether y_pred is expected to be a logits tensor. By default, we assume that y_pred encodes a probability distribution.
label_smoothing 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"

fn The metric function to wrap, with signature fn(y_true, y_pred, **kwargs).
name (Optional) string name of the metric instance.
dtype (Optional) data type of the metric result.
**kwargs The keyword arguments that are passed on to fn.

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 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.
