class ignite.metrics.CohenKappa(output_transform=<function CohenKappa.<lambda>>, weights=None, check_compute_fn=False, device=device(type='cpu'))[source]#

Compute different types of Cohen’s Kappa: Non-Wieghted, Linear, Quadratic. Accumulating predictions and the ground-truth during an epoch and applying sklearn.metrics.cohen_kappa_score .

  • 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.

  • weights (Optional[str]) – a string is used to define the type of Cohen’s Kappa whether Non-Weighted or Linear or Quadratic. Default, None.

  • check_compute_fn (bool) – Default False. If True, cohen_kappa_score is run on the first batch of data to ensure there are no issues. User will be warned in case there are any issues computing the function.

  • device (Union[str, device]) – optional device specification for internal storage.


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.
