tf.sparse.cross

View source on GitHub

Generates sparse cross from a list of sparse and dense tensors.

Aliases:

  • tf.compat.v1.sparse.cross
  • tf.compat.v2.sparse.cross
tf.sparse.cross(
    inputs,
    name=None
)

For example, if the inputs are

* inputs[0]: SparseTensor with shape = [2, 2]
  [0, 0]: "a"
  [1, 0]: "b"
  [1, 1]: "c"
* inputs[1]: SparseTensor with shape = [2, 1]
  [0, 0]: "d"
  [1, 0]: "e"
* inputs[2]: Tensor [["f"], ["g"]]

then the output will be:

shape = [2, 2]
[0, 0]: "a_X_d_X_f"
[1, 0]: "b_X_e_X_g"
[1, 1]: "c_X_e_X_g"

Args:

  • inputs: An iterable of Tensor or SparseTensor.
  • name: Optional name for the op.

Returns:

A SparseTensor of type string.
