"""
Computes Area Under the Receiver Operating Characteristic Curve (ROC AUC).
accumulating predictions and the ground-truth during an epoch and applying `compute_roc_auc`.
Args:
to_onehot_y: whether to convert `y` into the one-hot format. Defaults to False.
softmax: whether to add softmax function to `y_pred` before computation. Defaults to False.
other_act: callable function to replace `softmax` as activation layer if needed, Defaults to ``None``.
for example: `other_act = lambda x: torch.log_softmax(x)`.
average: {``"macro"``, ``"weighted"``, ``"micro"``, ``"none"``}
Type of averaging performed if not binary classification. Defaults to ``"macro"``.
- ``"macro"``: calculate metrics for each label, and find their unweighted mean.
This does not take label imbalance into account.
- ``"weighted"``: calculate metrics for each label, and find their average,
weighted by support (the number of true instances for each label).
- ``"micro"``: calculate metrics globally by considering each element of the label
indicator matrix as a label.
- ``"none"``: the scores for each class are returned.
output_transform: a callable that is used to transform the
:class:`~ignite.engine.Engine` `process_function` output into the
form expected by the metric. This can be useful if, for example, you have a multi-output model and
you want to compute the metric with respect to one of the outputs.
device: device specification in case of distributed computation usage.
Note:
ROCAUC expects y to be comprised of 0's and 1's.
y_pred must either be probability estimates or confidence values.
