Computes the mean of absolute difference between labels and predictions.

tf.keras.losses.MeanAbsoluteError( reduction=losses_utils.ReductionV2.AUTO, name='mean_absolute_error' )

`loss = abs(y_true - y_pred)`

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())

`from_config`

@classmethod from_config( config )

Instantiates a `Loss`

from its config (output of `get_config()`

).

Args | |
---|---|

`config` | Output of `get_config()` . |

Returns | |
---|---|

A `Loss` instance. |

`get_config`

get_config()

`__call__`

__call__( y_true, y_pred, sample_weight=None )

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 on`dN-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. |
