tf.contrib.data.prefetch_to_device

tf.contrib.data.prefetch_to_device(
    device,
    buffer_size=None
)

Defined in tensorflow/contrib/data/python/ops/prefetching_ops.py.

A transformation that prefetches dataset values to the given device.

NOTE: Although the transformation creates a tf.data.Dataset, the transformation must be the final Dataset in the input pipeline.

Args:

  • device: A string. The name of a device to which elements will be prefetched.
  • buffer_size: (Optional.) The number of elements to buffer on device. Defaults to an automatically chosen value.

Returns:

A Dataset transformation function, which can be passed to tf.data.Dataset.apply.
