- paddle.nn.functional. ctc_loss ( log_probs, labels, input_lengths, label_lengths, blank=0, reduction='mean', norm_by_times=False )
An operator integrating the open source Warp-CTC library (https://github.com/baidu-research/warp-ctc) to compute Connectionist Temporal Classification (CTC) loss. It can be aliased as softmax with CTC, since a native softmax activation is interated to the Warp-CTC library to normalize values for each row of the input tensor.
log_probs (Tensor) – The unscaled probability sequence with padding, which is a 3-D Tensor. The tensor shape is [max_logit_length, batch_size, num_classes + 1], where max_logit_length is the longest length of input logit sequence. The data type should be float32 or float64.
labels (Tensor) – The ground truth sequence with padding, which must be a 3-D Tensor. The tensor shape is [batch_size, max_label_length], where max_label_length is the longest length of label sequence. The data type must be int32.
input_lengths (Tensor) – The length for each input sequence, it should have shape [batch_size] and dtype int64.
label_lengths (Tensor) – The length for each label sequence, it should have shape [batch_size] and dtype int64.
blank (int, optional) – The blank label index of Connectionist Temporal Classification (CTC) loss, which is in the half-opened interval [0, num_classes + 1). The data type must be int32. Default is 0.
reduction (string, optional) – Indicate how to average the loss, the candicates are
'mean', the output loss will be divided by the label_lengths, and then return the mean of quotient; If
'sum', return the sum of loss; If
'none', no reduction will be applied. Default is
norm_by_times (bool, default False) –
'none', the shape of loss is [batch_size], otherwise, the shape of loss is . Data type is the same as
