I would like to know if the class weighting is also used in evaluating the loss in the validation data during the training. If not, is there a way to adjust the fit() function so that it takes into account the class weighting during the validation loss calculation.

  • $\begingroup$ I wonder why you want to add weights to the class during validation!! $\endgroup$ – enterML Sep 7 '17 at 5:52

As described in Keras.models.py[1], validation_data can be a tuple (inputs, targets, sample_weights). So, you can use this parameter for class weighting during the validation loss calculation.

  • $\begingroup$ This is sample weight, which means that I have to check for each class sample and make a vector that has the right class weight for each sample $\endgroup$ – HatemB Sep 4 '17 at 12:49

    $\begingroup$ @moh Any idea how to supply class weight for validation data when using a generator? $\endgroup$ – Eran Sep 26 '18 at 20:09
