SpaceToBatchNd

public final class SpaceToBatchNd

SpaceToBatch for N-D tensors of type T.

This operation divides "spatial" dimensions `[1, ..., M]` of the input into a grid of blocks of shape `block_shape`, and interleaves these blocks with the "batch" dimension (0) such that in the output, the spatial dimensions `[1, ..., M]` correspond to the position within the grid, and the batch dimension combines both the position within a spatial block and the original batch position. Prior to division into blocks, the spatial dimensions of the input are optionally zero padded according to `paddings`. See below for a precise description.

Public Methods

public Output<T> 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 SpaceToBatchNd<T> create (Scope scope, Operand<T> input, Operand<U> blockShape, Operand<V> paddings)

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

Parameters
scope current scope
input N-D with shape `input_shape = [batch] + spatial_shape + remaining_shape`, where spatial_shape has `M` dimensions.
blockShape 1-D with shape `[M]`, all values must be >= 1.
paddings 2-D with shape `[M, 2]`, all values must be >= 0. `paddings[i] = [pad_start, pad_end]` specifies the padding for input dimension `i + 1`, which corresponds to spatial dimension `i`. It is required that `block_shape[i]` divides `input_shape[i + 1] + pad_start + pad_end`.

This operation is equivalent to the following steps:

1. Zero-pad the start and end of dimensions `[1, ..., M]` of the input according to `paddings` to produce `padded` of shape `padded_shape`.

2. Reshape `padded` to `reshaped_padded` of shape:

[batch] + [padded_shape[1] / block_shape[0], block_shape[0], ..., padded_shape[M] / block_shape[M-1], block_shape[M-1]] + remaining_shape

3. Permute dimensions of `reshaped_padded` to produce `permuted_reshaped_padded` of shape:

block_shape + [batch] + [padded_shape[1] / block_shape[0], ..., padded_shape[M] / block_shape[M-1]] + remaining_shape

4. Reshape `permuted_reshaped_padded` to flatten `block_shape` into the batch dimension, producing an output tensor of shape:

[batch * prod(block_shape)] + [padded_shape[1] / block_shape[0], ..., padded_shape[M] / block_shape[M-1]] + remaining_shape

Some examples:

(1) For the following input of shape `[1, 2, 2, 1]`, `block_shape = [2, 2]`, and `paddings = [[0, 0], [0, 0]]`:

[[[[1]]], [[[2]]], [[[3]]], [[[4]]]]

       [[7, 8, 9], [10, 11, 12]]]]
 
The output tensor has shape `[4, 1, 1, 3]` and value:
[[[[1, 2, 3]]], [[[4, 5, 6]]], [[[7, 8, 9]]], [[[10, 11, 12]]]]

       [[13], [14], [15],  [16]]]]

(4) For the following input of shape `[2, 2, 4, 1]`, block_shape = `[2, 2]`, and paddings = `[[0, 0], [2, 0]]`:
x = [[[[1],   [2],  [3],  [4]],
       [[5],   [6],  [7],  [8]]],
      [[[9],  [10], [11],  [12]],

Among others, this operation is useful for reducing atrous convolution into regular convolution.
