A context manager for use when defining a Python op.


  • tf.compat.v2.keras.backend.name_scope

This context manager pushes a name scope, which will make the name of all operations added within it have a prefix.

For example, to define a new Python op called my_op:

def my_op(a):
  with tf.name_scope("MyOp") as scope:
    a = tf.convert_to_tensor(a, name="a")
    # Define some computation that uses `a`.
    return foo_op(..., name=scope)

When executed, the Tensor a will have the name MyOp/a.


  • name: The prefix to use on all names created within the name scope.
