Fingerprint

public final class Fingerprint

Generates fingerprint values.

Generates fingerprint values of `data`.

Fingerprint op considers the first dimension of `data` as the batch dimension, and `output[i]` contains the fingerprint value generated from contents in `data[i, ...]` for all `i`.

Fingerprint op writes fingerprint values as byte arrays. For example, the default method `farmhash64` generates a 64-bit fingerprint value at a time. This 8-byte value is written out as an `uint8` array of size 8, in little-endian order.

For example, suppose that `data` has data type `DT_INT32` and shape (2, 3, 4), and that the fingerprint method is `farmhash64`. In this case, the output shape is (2, 8), where 2 is the batch dimension size of `data`, and 8 is the size of each fingerprint value in bytes. `output[0, :]` is generated from 12 integers in `data[0, :, :]` and similarly `output[1, :]` is generated from other 12 integers in `data[1, :, :]`.

Note that this op fingerprints the raw underlying buffer, and it does not fingerprint Tensor's metadata such as data type and/or shape. For example, the fingerprint values are invariant under reshapes and bitcasts as long as the batch dimension remain the same:

Fingerprint(data) == Fingerprint(Reshape(data, ...))
 Fingerprint(data) == Fingerprint(Bitcast(data, ...))
 
For string data, one should expect `Fingerprint(data) != Fingerprint(ReduceJoin(data))` in general.

Public Methods

Output<UInt8>
asOutput()
Returns the symbolic handle of a tensor.
static <T> Fingerprint

Factory method to create a class wrapping a new Fingerprint operation.
Output<UInt8>
fingerprint()
A two-dimensional `Tensor` of type `tf.uint8`.

Inherited Methods

Public Methods

public Output<UInt8> asOutput ()

Returns the symbolic handle of a tensor.

Inputs to TensorFlow operations are outputs of another TensorFlow operation. This method is used to obtain a symbolic handle that represents the computation of the input.

public static Fingerprint create (Scope scope, Operand<T> data, Operand<String> method)

Factory method to create a class wrapping a new Fingerprint operation.

Parameters
scope current scope
data Must have rank 1 or higher.
method Fingerprint method used by this op. Currently available method is `farmhash::fingerprint64`.
Returns
  • a new instance of Fingerprint

public Output<UInt8> fingerprint ()

A two-dimensional `Tensor` of type `tf.uint8`. The first dimension equals to `data`'s first dimension, and the second dimension size depends on the fingerprint algorithm.
