class mxnet.gluon.loss.TripletLoss(margin=1, weight=None, batch_axis=0, **kwargs)[source]

Calculates triplet loss given three input tensors and a positive margin. Triplet loss measures the relative similarity between prediction, a positive example and a negative example:

\[L = \sum_i \max(\Vert {pred}_i - {pos_i} \Vert_2^2 - \Vert {pred}_i - {neg_i} \Vert_2^2 + {margin}, 0)\]

pred, positive and negative can have arbitrary shape as long as they have the same number of elements.

  • margin (float) – Margin of separation between correct and incorrect pair.
  • weight (float or None) – Global scalar weight for loss.
  • batch_axis (int, default 0) – The axis that represents mini-batch.
  • pred: prediction tensor with arbitrary shape
  • positive: positive example tensor with arbitrary shape. Must have the same size as pred.
  • negative: negative example tensor with arbitrary shape Must have the same size as pred.
  • loss: loss tensor with shape (batch_size,).
