Convert lists of tfq supported primitives to tensor representations.

Used in the notebooks

Used in the tutorials

Recursively convert a nested lists of cirq.PauliSum or cirq.Circuit objects to a tf.Tensor representation. Note that cirq serialization only supports cirq.GridQubits so we also require that input circuits and pauli sums are defined only on cirq.GridQubits.

my_qubits = cirq.GridQubit.rect(1, 2)
my_circuits = [cirq.Circuit(cirq.X(my_qubits[0])),
               cirq.Circuit(cirq.Z(my_qubits[0]))
]
tensor_input = tfq.convert_to_tensor(my_circuits)
# Now tensor_input can be used as model input etc.
same_circuits = tfq.from_tensor(tensor_input)
# same_circuits now holds cirq.Circuit objects once more.
same_circuits
[cirq.Circuit([
    cirq.Moment(operations=[
        cirq.X.on(cirq.GridQubit(0, 0)),
    ]),
])
 cirq.Circuit([
    cirq.Moment(operations=[
        cirq.Z.on(cirq.GridQubit(0, 0)),
    ]),
])]
