tf.keras.backend.truncated_normal

tf.keras.backend.truncated_normal(
    shape,
    mean=0.0,
    stddev=1.0,
    dtype=None,
    seed=None
)

Defined in tensorflow/python/keras/_impl/keras/backend.py.

Returns a tensor with truncated random normal distribution of values.

The generated values follow a normal distribution with specified mean and standard deviation, except that values whose magnitude is more than two standard deviations from the mean are dropped and re-picked.

Arguments:

  • shape: A tuple of integers, the shape of tensor to create.
  • mean: Mean of the values.
  • stddev: Standard deviation of the values.
  • dtype: String, dtype of returned tensor.
  • seed: Integer, random seed.

Returns:

A tensor.
