MAE

class mxnet.metric.MAE(name='mae', output_names=None, label_names=None)[source]

Computes Mean Absolute Error (MAE) loss.

The mean absolute error is given by

\[\frac{\sum_i^n |y_i - \hat{y}_i|}{n}\]
Parameters:
  • name (str) – Name of this metric instance for display.
  • output_names (list of str, or None) – Name of predictions that should be used when updating with update_dict. By default include all predictions.
  • label_names (list of str, or None) – Name of labels that should be used when updating with update_dict. By default include all labels.

Examples

>>> predicts = [mx.nd.array(np.array([3, -0.5, 2, 7]).reshape(4,1))]
>>> labels = [mx.nd.array(np.array([2.5, 0.0, 2, 8]).reshape(4,1))]
>>> mean_absolute_error = mx.metric.MAE()
>>> mean_absolute_error.update(labels = labels, preds = predicts)
>>> print mean_absolute_error.get()
('mae', 0.5)
