tf.serialize_sparse(sp_input, name=None)

tf.serialize_sparse(sp_input, name=None)

Serialize a SparseTensor into a string 3-vector (1-D Tensor) object.

Args:

  • sp_input: The input SparseTensor.
  • name: A name prefix for the returned tensors (optional).

Returns:

A string 3-vector (1D Tensor), with each column representing the serialized SparseTensor's indices, values, and shape (respectively).

Raises:

  • TypeError: If sp_input is not a SparseTensor.
