It is the evaluation measure to check the performance of the classification model. It measures the amount of divergence of predicted probability with the actual label. So lesser the log loss value, more the perfectness of model. For a perfect model, log loss value = 0. For instance, as accuracy is the count of correct predictions i.e. the prediction that matches the actual label, Log Loss value is the measure of uncertainty of our predicted labels based on how it varies from the actual label.
where, N : no. of samples. M : no. of attributes. yij : indicates whether ith sample belongs to jth class or not. pij : indicates probability of ith sample belonging to jth class.
Mean Squared Error
It is simply the average of the square of the difference between the original values and the predicted values.
