Given minibatches for x and y, this function computes for each element in x the cosine distance between it and the corresponding y and additionally the cosine distance between x and some other elements of y (referred to a negative samples). The x and y pairs are samples often derived from embeddings of textual data, though the function can be used for any form of numeric encodings. When using this function to compute textual similarity, x represents search query term embedding and y represents a document embedding. The negative samples are formed on the fly by shifting the right side (y). The shift indicates how many samples in y one should shift while forming each negative sample pair. It is often chosen to be 1. As the name suggests num_negative_samples indicates how many negative samples one would want to generate.

$left-operand The left operand of the operation.
$right-operand The right operand of the operation.
$shift-window Non-zero positive integer representing number of shift to generate a negative sample.
$number-of-negative-samples Number of negative samples to generate, a non-zero positive integer.
$name The name of the function instance in the network.
