Converts value to a SparseTensor or Tensor.

Args:

  • value: A SparseTensor, SparseTensorValue, or an object whose type has a registered Tensor conversion function.
  • dtype: Optional element type for the returned tensor. If missing, the type is inferred from the type of value.
  • name: Optional name to use if a new Tensor is created.

Returns:

A SparseTensor or Tensor based on value.

Raises:

  • RuntimeError: If result type is incompatible with dtype.
