Converts the given object to a Tensor or an IndexedSlices.

    value, dtype=None, name=None

If value is an IndexedSlices or SparseTensor it is returned unmodified. Otherwise, it is converted to a Tensor using convert_to_tensor().


  • value: An IndexedSlices, SparseTensor, or an object that can be consumed by convert_to_tensor().
  • dtype: (Optional.) The required DType of the returned Tensor or IndexedSlices.
  • name: (Optional.) A name to use if a new Tensor is created.


A Tensor, IndexedSlices, or SparseTensor based on value.


  • ValueError: If dtype does not match the element type of value.
