Deep Learning Loss Function

Hi,

I was wondering which loss function is selected in case the Deep Learning model is selected and the "Loss_Function" is set to "Automatic".

For most parameters this is specified in the documentation. However, for the loss function this is not explained in the documentation. (I can't add the link to the documentation page...)

Thanks in advance.

    As this is the H2O.ai operator, the best is to look at their specs on the web site. Here is what they say on this (for some reason in their discussion of "distribution").
    'By default, the loss function method performs AUTO distribution. In this case, the algorithm will guess the model type based on the response column type (specified using y). More specifically, if the response column type is numeric, AUTO defaults to “gaussian”; if categorical, AUTO defaults to bernoulli or multinomial depending on the number of response categories.'
