Computes the categorical hinge loss between y_true and y_pred.

loss = maximum(neg - pos + 1, 0) where neg = sum(y_true * y_pred) and pos = maximum(1 - y_true)


ch = tf.keras.losses.CategoricalHinge()
loss = ch([0., 1., 1.], [1., 0., 1.])
print('Loss: ', loss.numpy())  # Loss: 1.0

Usage with the compile API:

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

Invokes the Loss instance.

y_true Ground truth values. shape = [batch_size, d0, .. dN]
y_pred The predicted values. shape = [batch_size, d0, .. dN]
sample_weight Optional 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 is [batch_size, d0, .. dN-1] (or can be broadcasted to this shape), then each loss element of y_pred is scaled by the corresponding value of sample_weight. (Note ondN-1: all loss functions reduce by 1 dimension, usually axis=-1.)

Weighted loss float Tensor. If reduction is NONE, this has shape [batch_size, d0, .. dN-1]; otherwise, it is scalar. (Note dN-1 because all loss functions reduce by 1 dimension, usually axis=-1.)

ValueError If the shape of sample_weight is invalid.
