tf.keras.losses.MeanAbsoluteError

TensorFlow 1 version View source on GitHub

Computes the mean of absolute difference between labels and predictions.

loss = abs(y_true - y_pred)

Usage:

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

Usage with the compile API:

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

Methods

from_config

View source

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

Args
config Output of get_config().

Returns
A Loss instance.

__call__

View source

Invokes the Loss instance.

Args
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.)

Returns
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.)

Raises
ValueError If the shape of sample_weight is invalid.
