nn_hinge_embedding_loss: Hinge embedding loss

Description Usage Arguments Details Shape


Measures the loss given an input tensor x and a labels tensor y (containing 1 or -1).


nn_hinge_embedding_loss(margin = 1, reduction = "mean")



(float, optional): Has a default value of 1.


(string, optional): Specifies the reduction to apply to the output: 'none' | 'mean' | 'sum'. 'none': no reduction will be applied, 'mean': the sum of the output will be divided by the number of elements in the output, 'sum': the output will be summed. Note: size_average and reduce are in the process of being deprecated, and in the meantime, specifying either of those two args will override reduction. Default: 'mean'


This is usually used for measuring whether two inputs are similar or dissimilar, e.g. using the L1 pairwise distance as x, and is typically used for learning nonlinear embeddings or semi-supervised learning. The loss function for n-th sample in the mini-batch is

l_n = \begin{array}{ll} x_n, & \mbox{if}\; y_n = 1,\\ \max \{0, Δ - x_n\}, & \mbox{if}\; y_n = -1, \end{array}

and the total loss functions is

\ell(x, y) = \begin{array}{ll} \mbox{mean}(L), & \mbox{if reduction} = \mbox{'mean';}\\ \mbox{sum}(L), & \mbox{if reduction} = \mbox{'sum'.} \end{array}

where L = \{l_1,…,l_N\}^\top.
