See the guide: Inputs and Readers > Converting

Transforms a serialized tensorflow.TensorProto proto into a Tensor.


  • serialized: A Tensor of type string. A scalar string containing a serialized TensorProto proto.
  • out_type: A tf.DType. The type of the serialized tensor. The provided type must match the type of the serialized tensor and no implicit conversion will take place.
  • name: A name for the operation (optional).


A Tensor of type out_type. A Tensor of type out_type.
