tf.serialize_sparse

tf.serialize_sparse(
    sp_input,
    name=None,
    out_type=tf.string
)

Defined in tensorflow/python/ops/sparse_ops.py.

Serialize a SparseTensor into a 3-vector (1-D Tensor) object.

Args:

  • sp_input: The input SparseTensor.
  • name: A name prefix for the returned tensors (optional).
  • out_type: The dtype to use for serialization.

Returns:

A 3-vector (1-D Tensor), with each column representing the serialized SparseTensor's indices, values, and shape (respectively).

Raises:

  • TypeError: If sp_input is not a SparseTensor.
