Creates a uninitialized anonymous hash table.

This op creates a new anonymous hash table (as a resource) everytime it is executed, with the specified dtype of its keys and values, returning the resource handle. Before using the table you will have to initialize it. After initialization the table will be immutable. The table is anonymous in the sense that it can only be accessed by the returned resource handle (e.g. it cannot be looked up by a name in a resource manager). The table will be automatically deleted when all resource handles pointing to it are gone.

key_dtype A tf.DType. Type of the table keys.
value_dtype A tf.DType. Type of the table values.
name A name for the operation (optional).

A Tensor of type resource.
