View source on GitHub

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

tf.compat.v2.io.serialize_sparse(
    sp_input,
    out_type=tf.dtypes.string,
    name=None
)

Args:

  • sp_input: The input SparseTensor.
  • out_type: The dtype to use for serialization.
  • name: A name prefix for the returned tensors (optional).

Returns:

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

Raises:

  • TypeError: If sp_input is not a SparseTensor.
