Transposed convolution layer (sometimes called Deconvolution).

The need for transposed convolutions generally arises from the desire to use a transformation going in the opposite direction of a normal convolution, i.e., from something that has the shape of the output of some convolution to something that has the shape of its input while maintaining a connectivity pattern that is compatible with said convolution.

Arguments:

  • inputs: Input tensor.
  • filters: integer, the dimensionality of the output space (i.e. the number output of filters in the convolution).
  • kernel_size: a tuple or list of 2 positive integers specifying the spatial dimensions of of the filters. Can be a single integer to specify the same value for all spatial dimensions.
  • strides: a tuple or list of 2 positive integers specifying the strides of the convolution. Can be a single integer to specify the same value for all spatial dimensions.
  • padding: one of "valid" or "same" (case-insensitive).
  • data_format: A string, one of channels_last (default) or channels_first. The ordering of the dimensions in the inputs. channels_last corresponds to inputs with shape (batch, width, height, channels) while channels_first corresponds to inputs with shape (batch, channels, width, height).
  • activation: Activation function. Set it to None to maintain a linear activation.
  • use_bias: Boolean, whether the layer uses a bias.
  • kernel_initializer: An initializer for the convolution kernel.
  • bias_initializer: An initializer for the bias vector. If None, no bias will be applied.
  • kernel_regularizer: Optional regularizer for the convolution kernel.
  • bias_regularizer: Optional regularizer for the bias vector.
  • activity_regularizer: Regularizer function for the output.
  • trainable: Boolean, if True also add variables to the graph collection GraphKeys.TRAINABLE_VARIABLES (see tf.Variable).
  • name: A string, the name of the layer.
  • reuse: Boolean, whether to reuse the weights of a previous layer by the same name.

Returns:

Output tensor.
