# text.WaterfallTrimmer

A Trimmer that allocates a length budget to segments in order.

A Trimmer that allocates a length budget to segments in order. It selects elements to drop, according to a max sequence length budget, and then applies this mask to actually drop the elements. See generate_mask() for more details.

#### Example:

a = tf.ragged.constant([['a', 'b', 'c'], [], ['d']])
b = tf.ragged.constant([['1', '2', '3'], [], ['4', '5', '6', '7']])
trimmer = tf_text.WaterfallTrimmer(4)
trimmer.trim([a, b])
[<tf.RaggedTensor [[b'a', b'b', b'c'], [], [b'd']]>,
<tf.RaggedTensor [[b'1'], [], [b'4', b'5', b'6']]>]

Here, for the first pair of elements, ['a', 'b', 'c'] and ['1', '2', '3'], the '2' and '3' are dropped to fit the sequence within the max sequence length budget.

max_seq_length a scalar Tensor or a 1D Tensor of type int32 that describes the number max number of elements allowed in a batch. If a scalar is provided, the value is broadcasted and applied to all values across the batch.
axis Axis to apply trimming on.

Calculates a truncation mask given a per-batch budget.

Calculate a truncation mask given a budget of the max number of items for each or all batch row. The allocation of the budget is done using a 'waterfall' algorithm. This algorithm allocates quota in a left-to-right manner and fill up the buckets until we run out of budget.

For example if the budget of [5] and we have segments of size [3, 4, 2], the truncate budget will be allocated as [3, 2, 0].

The budget can be a scalar, in which case the same budget is broadcasted and applied to all batch rows. It can also be a 1D Tensor of size batch_size, in which each batch row i will have a budget corresponding to per_batch_quota[i].

#### Example:

a = tf.ragged.constant([['a', 'b', 'c'], [], ['d']])
b = tf.ragged.constant([['1', '2', '3'], [], ['4', '5', '6', '7']])
trimmer = tf_text.WaterfallTrimmer(4)
[<tf.RaggedTensor [[True, True, True], [], [True]]>,
<tf.RaggedTensor [[True, False, False], [], [True, True, True, False]]>]

Args
segments A list of RaggedTensor each w/ a shape of [num_batch, (num_items)].

Returns
a list with len(segments) of RaggedTensors, see superclass for details.

Truncate the list of segments.

Truncate the list of segments using the truncation strategy defined by generate_mask.

Args
segments A list of RaggedTensors w/ shape [num_batch, (num_items)].

Returns
a list of RaggedTensors with len(segments) number of items and where each item has the same shape as its counterpart in segments and with unwanted values dropped. The values are dropped according to the TruncationStrategy defined.
