Returns a tensor with truncated random normal distribution of values.

    shape, mean=0.0, stddev=1.0, dtype=None, seed=None

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.


  • 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.


A tensor.
