Global max pooling operation for 1D temporal data.

Used in the guide Used in the tutorials

Downsamples the input representation by taking the maximum value over the time dimension.

For example:

x = tf.constant([[1., 2., 3.], [4., 5., 6.], [7., 8., 9.]])
x = tf.reshape(x, [3, 3, 1])
<tf.Tensor: shape=(3, 3, 1), dtype=float32, numpy=
array([[[1.], [2.], [3.]],
       [[4.], [5.], [6.]],
       [[7.], [8.], [9.]]], dtype=float32)>
max_pool_1d = tf.keras.layers.GlobalMaxPooling1D()
<tf.Tensor: shape=(3, 1), dtype=float32, numpy=
       [9.], dtype=float32)>

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, steps, features) while channels_first corresponds to inputs with shape (batch, features, steps).

Input shape:

  • If data_format='channels_last': 3D tensor with shape: (batch_size, steps, features)
  • If data_format='channels_first': 3D tensor with shape: (batch_size, features, steps)

Output shape:

2D tensor with shape (batch_size, features).
