Loss function is an important part in artificial neural networks, which is used to measure the inconsistency between predicted value (^y) and actual label (y). It is a non-negative value, where the robustness of model increases along with the decrease of the value of loss function.

Some of the loss functions are:

  • mean squared error
  • mean absolute error
  • mean absolute percentage error
  • mean squared logarithmic error
  • kullback leibler divergence
