r"""Connectionist Temporal Classification Loss.
Parameters
----------
layout : str, default 'NTC'
Layout of prediction tensor. 'N', 'T', 'C' stands for batch size,
sequence length, and alphabet_size respectively.
label_layout : str, default 'NT'
Layout of the labels. 'N', 'T' stands for batch size, and sequence
length respectively.
weight : float or None
Global scalar weight for loss.
Inputs:
- **pred**: unnormalized prediction tensor (before softmax).
Its shape depends on `layout`. If `layout` is 'TNC', pred
should have shape `(sequence_length, batch_size, alphabet_size)`.
Note that in the last dimension, index `alphabet_size-1` is reserved
for internal use as blank label. So `alphabet_size` is one plus the
actual alphabet size.
- **label**: zero-based label tensor. Its shape depends on `label_layout`.
If `label_layout` is 'TN', `label` should have shape
`(label_sequence_length, batch_size)`.
- **pred_lengths**: optional (default None), used for specifying the
length of each entry when different `pred` entries in the same batch
have different lengths. `pred_lengths` should have shape `(batch_size,)`.
- **label_lengths**: optional (default None), used for specifying the
length of each entry when different `label` entries in the same batch
have different lengths. `label_lengths` should have shape `(batch_size,)`.
Outputs:
- **loss**: output loss has shape `(batch_size,)`.
**Example**: suppose the vocabulary is `[a, b, c]`, and in one batch we
have three sequences 'ba', 'cbb', and 'abac'. We can index the labels as
`{'a': 0, 'b': 1, 'c': 2, blank: 3}`. Then `alphabet_size` should be 4,
where label 3 is reserved for internal use by `CTCLoss`. We then need to
pad each sequence with `-1` to make a rectangular `label` tensor::
[[1, 0, -1, -1],
[2, 1, 1, -1],
[0, 1, 0, 2]]
