See the guide: Neural Network > Activation Functions

Computes hyperbolic tangent of x element-wise.


  • x: A Tensor or SparseTensor with type float, double, int32, complex64, int64, or qint32.
  • name: A name for the operation (optional).


A Tensor or SparseTensor respectively with the same type as x if x.dtype != qint32 otherwise the return type is quint8.
