TensorFlow 1 version View source on GitHub

Draws samples from a categorical distribution.

Used in the notebooks

Used in the tutorials

Example:

# samples has shape [1, 5], where each value is either 0 or 1 with equal
# probability.
samples = tf.random.categorical(tf.math.log([[0.5, 0.5]]), 5)

logits 2-D Tensor with shape [batch_size, num_classes]. Each slice [i, :] represents the unnormalized log-probabilities for all classes.
num_samples 0-D. Number of independent samples to draw for each row slice.
dtype integer type to use for the output. Defaults to int64.
seed A Python integer. Used to create a random seed for the distribution. See tf.random.set_seed for behavior.
name Optional name for the operation.

The drawn samples of shape [batch_size, num_samples].
