paddle.fluid.layers.metric_op. accuracy ( input, label, k=1, correct=None, total=None ) [source]

accuracy layer. Refer to the

This function computes the accuracy using the input and label. If the correct label occurs in top k predictions, then correct will increment by one. Note: the dtype of accuracy is determined by input. the input and label dtype can be different.

  • input (Variable) – The input of accuracy layer, which is the predictions of network. A LoDTensor or Tensor with type float32,float64. The shape is [sample_number, class_dim] .

  • label (Variable) – The label of dataset. LoDTensor or Tensor with type int32,int64. The shape is [sample_number, 1] .

  • k (int) – The top k predictions for each class will be checked. Data type is int64 or int32.

  • correct (Variable) – The correct predictions count. A Tensor with type int64 or int32.

  • total (Variable) – The total entries count. A tensor with type int64 or int32.


The correct rate. A Tensor with type float32.
