Computes the negative log likelihood loss.

Parameters:
  • inputs (array) – The predicted distribution in log space.

  • targets (array) – The target values.

  • axis (int, optional) – The distribution axis. Default: -1.

  • reduction (str, optional) – Specifies the reduction to apply to the output: 'none' | 'mean' | 'sum'. Default: 'none'.

Returns:
