Creates an op that assigns target from source.

    target, source

This utility function provides the exact same behavior as tf.Variable.assign, but it generalizes to a wider class of objects, including ordinary variables as well as various types of nested structures.


  • target: A nested structure composed of variables embedded in containers that are compatible with tf.nest, or instances of anonymous_tuple.AnonymousTuple.
  • source: A nsested structure composed of tensors, matching that of target.


A single op that represents the assignment.


  • TypeError: If types mismatch.
