hinge_loss
(y_true, pred_decision, labels=None, sample_weight=None)[source]¶ Average hinge loss (nonregularized)
In binary class case, assuming labels in y_true are encoded with +1 and 1, when a prediction mistake is made,
margin = y_true * pred_decision
is always negative (since the signs disagree), implying1  margin
is always greater than 1. The cumulated hinge loss is therefore an upper bound of the number of mistakes made by the classifier.In multiclass case, the function expects that either all the labels are included in y_true or an optional labels argument is provided which contains all the labels. The multilabel margin is calculated according to CrammerSinger’s method. As in the binary case, the cumulated hinge loss is an upper bound of the number of mistakes made by the classifier.

Parameters:  y_true : array, shape = [n_samples]
True target, consisting of integers of two values. The positive label must be greater than the negative label.
 pred_decision : array, shape = [n_samples] or [n_samples, n_classes]
Predicted decisions, as output by decision_function (floats).
 labels : array, optional, default None
Contains all the labels for the problem. Used in multiclass hinge loss.
 sample_weight : arraylike of shape = [n_samples], optional
Sample weights.
Returns:  loss : float
