tfds.builder

tfds.builder(
    name,
    **builder_init_kwargs
)

Defined in core/registered.py.

Fetches a tfds.core.DatasetBuilder by string name.

Args:

  • name: str, the registered name of the DatasetBuilder (the snake case version of the class name). This can be either "dataset_name" or "dataset_name/config_name" for datasets with BuilderConfigs. As a convenience, this string may contain comma-separated keyword arguments for the builder. For example "foo_bar/a=True,b=3" would use the FooBar dataset passing the keyword arguments a=True and b=3 (for builders with configs, it would be "foo_bar/zoo/a=True,b=3" to use the "zoo" config and pass to the builder keyword arguments a=True and b=3).
  • **builder_init_kwargs: dict of keyword arguments passed to the DatasetBuilder. These will override keyword arguments passed in name, if any.

Returns:

A tfds.core.DatasetBuilder.

Raises:

  • DatasetNotFoundError: if name is unrecognized.
