# tf.glorot_uniform_initializer

tf.glorot_uniform_initializer(
seed=None,
dtype=tf.float32
)


Defined in tensorflow/python/ops/init_ops.py.

The Glorot uniform initializer, also called Xavier uniform initializer.

It draws samples from a uniform distribution within [-limit, limit] where limit is sqrt(6 / (fan_in + fan_out)) where fan_in is the number of input units in the weight tensor and fan_out is the number of output units in the weight tensor.
