tf.raw_ops.SparseCrossV2

robots: noindex

Generates sparse cross from a list of sparse and dense tensors.

The op takes two lists, one of 2D SparseTensor and one of 2D Tensor, each representing features of one feature column. It outputs a 2D SparseTensor with the batchwise crosses of these features.

For example, if the inputs are

inputs[0]: SparseTensor with shape = [2, 2]
[0, 0]: "a"
[1, 0]: "b"
[1, 1]: "c"

inputs[1]: SparseTensor with shape = [2, 1]
[0, 0]: "d"
[1, 0]: "e"

inputs[2]: Tensor [["f"], ["g"]]

then the output will be

shape = [2, 2]
[0, 0]: "a_X_d_X_f"
[1, 0]: "b_X_e_X_g"
[1, 1]: "c_X_e_X_g"

if hashed_output=true then the output will be

shape = [2, 2]
[0, 0]: FingerprintCat64(
            Fingerprint64("f"), FingerprintCat64(
                Fingerprint64("d"), Fingerprint64("a")))
[1, 0]: FingerprintCat64(
            Fingerprint64("g"), FingerprintCat64(
                Fingerprint64("e"), Fingerprint64("b")))
[1, 1]: FingerprintCat64(
            Fingerprint64("g"), FingerprintCat64(
                Fingerprint64("e"), Fingerprint64("c")))

indices A list of Tensor objects with type int64. 2-D. Indices of each input SparseTensor.
