mx.nd.MAERegressionOutput

Description

Computes mean absolute error of the input.

MAE is a risk metric corresponding to the expected value of the absolute error.

If \(\hat{y}_i\) is the predicted value of the i-th sample, and \(y_i\) is the corresponding target value, then the mean absolute error (MAE) estimated over \(n\) samples is defined as

\(\text{MAE}(\textbf{Y}, \hat{\textbf{Y}} ) = \frac{1}{n} \sum_{i=0}^{n-1} \lVert \textbf{y}_i - \hat{\textbf{y}}_i \rVert_1\)

Note

Use the MAERegressionOutput as the final output layer of a net.

The storage type of label can be default or csr

  • MAERegressionOutput(default, default) = default

  • MAERegressionOutput(default, csr) = default

By default, gradients of this loss function are scaled by factor 1/m, where m is the number of regression outputs of a training example. The parameter grad_scale can be used to change this scale to grad_scale/m.
