Using the Softmax Classifier in PyTorch

Muhammad Asad Iqbal Khan takes us through one of the classifier options available to PyTorch:

While a logistic regression classifier is used for binary class classification, softmax classifier is a supervised learning algorithm which is mostly used when multiple classes are involved.

Softmax classifier works by assigning a probability distribution to each class. The probability distribution of the class with the highest probability is normalized to 1, and all other probabilities are scaled accordingly.

Read on to learn some of the properties of the Softmax classifier, as well as how you can use this for multi-class classification in PyTorch.
