tf.keras.layers.AbstractRNNCell( trainable=True, name=None, dtype=None, dynamic=False, **kwargs )
See the Keras RNN API guide for details about the usage of RNN API.
This is the base class for implementing RNN cells with custom behavior.
RNNCell must have the properties below and implement
(output, next_state) = call(input, state).
class MinimalRNNCell(AbstractRNNCell): def __init__(self, units, **kwargs): self.units = units super(MinimalRNNCell, self).__init__(**kwargs) @property def state_size(self): return self.units def build(self, input_shape): self.kernel = self.add_weight(shape=(input_shape[-1], self.units), initializer='uniform', name='kernel') self.recurrent_kernel = self.add_weight( shape=(self.units, self.units), initializer='uniform', name='recurrent_kernel') self.built = True def call(self, inputs, states): prev_output = states h = backend.dot(inputs, self.kernel) output = h + backend.dot(prev_output, self.recurrent_kernel) return output, output
This definition of cell differs from the definition used in the literature. In the literature, 'cell' refers to an object with a single scalar output. This definition refers to a horizontal array of such units.
An RNN cell, in the most abstract setting, is anything that has
a state and performs some operation that takes a matrix of inputs.
This operation results in an output matrix with
self.state_size is an integer, this operation also results in a new
state matrix with
self.state_size columns. If
self.state_size is a
(possibly nested tuple of) TensorShape object(s), then it should return a
matching structure of Tensors having shape
||Integer or TensorShape: size of outputs produced by this cell.|
size(s) of state(s) used by this cell.
It can be represented by an Integer, a TensorShape or a tuple of Integers or TensorShapes.
