Logarithm of the hyperbolic cosine of the prediction error.

log(cosh(x)) is approximately equal to (x ** 2) / 2 for small x and to abs(x) - log(2) for large x. This means that 'logcosh' works mostly like the mean squared error, but will not be so strongly affected by the occasional wildly incorrect prediction.


y_true = np.random.random(size=(2, 3))
y_pred = np.random.random(size=(2, 3))
loss = tf.keras.losses.logcosh(y_true, y_pred)
assert loss.shape == (2,)
x = y_pred - y_true
assert np.allclose(
    np.mean(x + np.log(np.exp(-2. * x) + 1.) - math_ops.log(2.), axis=-1),

y_true Ground truth values. shape = [batch_size, d0, .. dN].
y_pred The predicted values. shape = [batch_size, d0, .. dN].

Logcosh error values. shape = [batch_size, d0, .. dN-1].
