tf.keras.layers.DepthwiseConv2D

Depthwise separable 2D convolution.

Inherits From: Conv2D

Depthwise Separable convolutions consist of performing just the first step in a depthwise spatial convolution (which acts on each input channel separately). The depth_multiplier argument controls how many output channels are generated per input channel in the depthwise step.

kernel_size An integer or tuple/list of 2 integers, specifying the height and width of the 2D convolution window. Can be a single integer to specify the same value for all spatial dimensions.
strides An integer or tuple/list of 2 integers, specifying the strides of the convolution along the height and width. Can be a single integer to specify the same value for all spatial dimensions. Specifying any stride value != 1 is incompatible with specifying any dilation_rate value != 1.
padding one of 'valid' or 'same' (case-insensitive).
depth_multiplier The number of depthwise convolution output channels for each input channel. The total number of depthwise convolution output channels will be equal to filters_in * depth_multiplier.
data_format A string, one of channels_last (default) or channels_first. The ordering of the dimensions in the inputs. channels_last corresponds to inputs with shape (batch_size, height, width, channels) while channels_first corresponds to inputs with shape (batch_size, channels, height, width). It defaults to the image_data_format value found in your Keras config file at ~/.keras/keras.json. If you never set it, then it will be 'channels_last'.
dilation_rate An integer or tuple/list of 2 integers, specifying the dilation rate to use for dilated convolution. Currently, specifying any dilation_rate value != 1 is incompatible with specifying any strides value != 1.
activation Activation function to use. If you don't specify anything, no activation is applied ( see keras.activations).
use_bias Boolean, whether the layer uses a bias vector.
depthwise_initializer Initializer for the depthwise kernel matrix ( see keras.initializers).
bias_initializer Initializer for the bias vector ( see keras.initializers).
depthwise_regularizer Regularizer function applied to the depthwise kernel matrix (see keras.regularizers).
bias_regularizer Regularizer function applied to the bias vector ( see keras.regularizers).
activity_regularizer Regularizer function applied to the output of the layer (its 'activation') ( see keras.regularizers).
depthwise_constraint Constraint function applied to the depthwise kernel matrix ( see keras.constraints).
bias_constraint Constraint function applied to the bias vector ( see keras.constraints).

Input shape:

4D tensor with shape: [batch_size, channels, rows, cols] if data_format='channels_first' or 4D tensor with shape: [batch_size, rows, cols, channels] if data_format='channels_last'.

Output shape:

4D tensor with shape: [batch_size, filters, new_rows, new_cols] if data_format='channels_first' or 4D tensor with shape: [batch_size, new_rows, new_cols, filters] if data_format='channels_last'. rows and cols values might have changed due to padding.

A tensor of rank 4 representing activation(depthwiseconv2d(inputs, kernel) + bias).

ValueError if padding is "causal".
ValueError when both strides > 1 and dilation_rate > 1.
