Softmax Classifier#

A generalization of Logistic Regression for the multiclass case using a single layer neural network with a Softmax output layer.

Interfaces: Estimator, Learner, Online, Probabilistic, Verbose, Persistable

Data Type Compatibility: Continuous


# Param Default Type Description
1 batch size 100 int The number of training samples to process at a time.
2 optimizer Adam object The gradient descent optimizer used to update the network parameters.
3 alpha 1e-4 float The amount of L2 regularization to apply to the parameters of the network.
4 epochs 1000 int The maximum number of training epochs. i.e. the number of times to iterate over the entire training set before terminating.
5 min change 1e-4 float The minimum change in the training loss necessary to continue training.
6 window 5 int The number of epochs without improvement in the training loss to wait before considering an early stop.
7 cost fn CrossEntropy object The function that computes the loss associated with an erroneous activation during training.

Additional Methods#

Return the training loss at each epoch:

public steps() : array

Return the underlying neural network instance or null if untrained:

public network() : Network|null
