tf.keras.losses.MeanSquaredError

TensorFlow 2.0 version View source on GitHub

Class MeanSquaredError

Computes the mean of squares of errors between labels and predictions.

Aliases:

  • Class tf.compat.v1.keras.losses.MeanSquaredError
  • Class tf.compat.v2.keras.losses.MeanSquaredError
  • Class tf.compat.v2.losses.MeanSquaredError

For example, if y_true is [0., 0., 1., 1.] and y_pred is [1., 1., 1., 0.] then the mean squared error value is 3/4 (0.75).

Usage:

mse = tf.keras.losses.MeanSquaredError()
loss = mse([0., 0., 1., 1.], [1., 1., 1., 0.])
print('Loss: ', loss.numpy())  # Loss: 0.75

Usage with tf.keras API:

model = tf.keras.Model(inputs, outputs)
model.compile('sgd', loss=tf.keras.losses.MeanSquaredError())

Methods

__call__

View source

__call__(
    y_true,
    y_pred,
    sample_weight=None
)

Invokes the Loss instance.

Args:

  • y_true: Ground truth values.
  • y_pred: The predicted values.
  • sample_weight: Optional Tensor whose rank is either 0, or the same rank as y_true, or is broadcastable to y_true. sample_weight acts as a coefficient for the loss. If a scalar is provided, then the loss is simply scaled by the given value. If sample_weight 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 sample_weight vector. If the shape of sample_weight matches the shape of y_pred, then the loss of each measurable element of y_pred is scaled by the corresponding value of sample_weight.

Returns:

Weighted loss float Tensor. If reduction is NONE, this has the same shape as y_true; otherwise, it is scalar.

Raises:

  • ValueError: If the shape of sample_weight is invalid.

from_config

from_config(
    cls,

)

Instantiates a Loss from its config (output of get_config()).

Args:

  • config: Output of get_config().

Returns:

A Loss instance.
