RootMeanSquaredError#

class ignite.metrics.RootMeanSquaredError(output_transform=<function Metric.<lambda>>, device=device(type='cpu'))[source]#

Calculates the root mean squared error.

RMSE=1Ni=1N(yixi)2\text{RMSE} = \sqrt{ \frac{1}{N} \sum_{i=1}^N \left(y_{i} - x_{i} \right)^2 }

where yiy_{i} is the prediction tensor and xix_{i} is ground true tensor.

  • update must receive output of the form (y_pred, y) or {‘y_pred’: y_pred, ‘y’: y}.

Parameters
  • output_transform (Callable) – a callable that is used to transform the Engine’s process_function’s output into the form expected by the metric. This can be useful if, for example, you have a multi-output model and you want to compute the metric with respect to one of the outputs. By default, metrics require the output as (y_pred, y) or {'y_pred': y_pred, 'y': y}.

  • device (Union[str, torch.device]) – specifies which device updates are accumulated on. Setting the metric’s device to be the same as your update arguments ensures the update method is non-blocking. By default, CPU.

Examples

To use with Engine and process_function, simply attach the metric instance to the engine. The output of the engine’s process_function needs to be in the format of (y_pred, y) or {'y_pred': y_pred, 'y': y, ...}. If not, output_tranform can be added to the metric to transform the output into the form expected by the metric.

y_pred and y should have the same shape.

metric = RootMeanSquaredError()
metric.attach(default_evaluator, 'rmse')
preds = torch.Tensor([
    [1, 2, 4, 1],
    [2, 3, 1, 5],
    [1, 3, 5, 1],
    [1, 5, 1 ,11]
])
target = preds * 0.75
state = default_evaluator.run([[preds, target]])
print(state.metrics['rmse'])
1.956559480312316

Methods

compute

Computes the metric based on it's accumulated state.

compute()[source]#

Computes the metric based on it’s accumulated state.

By default, this is called at the end of each epoch.

Returns

the actual quantity of interest. However, if a Mapping is returned, it will be (shallow) flattened into engine.state.metrics when completed() is called.

Return type

Any

Raises

NotComputableError – raised when the metric cannot be computed.
