# Softmax2D¶

class paddle.nn. Softmax2D ( name=None ) [source]

Softmax2D Activation. Given a Tensor with shape (B, C, H, W) or (C, H, W), it will apply Softmax to each location (C, h_i, w_j). The sum of result in each location (C, H_i, W_j) will be one.

Shape:
• Input: \((B, C, H, W)\) or \((C, H, W)\)

• Output: \((B, C, H, W)\) or \((C, H, W)\) (same as input)

Returns

A Tensor of the same shape and dtype as input with value in range [0, 1].

forward ( x )

Defines the computation performed at every call. Should be overridden by all subclasses.

Parameters
• *inputs (tuple) – unpacked tuple arguments

• **kwargs (dict) – unpacked dict arguments

extra_repr ( )

Extra representation of this layer, you can have custom implementation of your own layer.
