Outputs random values from a truncated normal distribution.

Used in the notebooks

Used in the guide

The generated values follow a normal distribution with specified mean and standard deviation, except that values whose magnitude is more than 2 standard deviations from the mean are dropped and re-picked.

shape A 1-D integer Tensor or Python array. The shape of the output tensor.
mean A 0-D Tensor or Python value of type dtype. The mean of the truncated normal distribution.
stddev A 0-D Tensor or Python value of type dtype. The standard deviation of the normal distribution, before truncation.
dtype The type of the output.
seed A Python integer. Used to create a random seed for the distribution. See tf.random.set_seed for behavior.
name A name for the operation (optional).

A tensor of the specified shape filled with random truncated normal values.
