Outputs random values from a normal distribution.

    shape, dtype, seed=0, seed2=0, name=None

The generated values will have mean 0 and standard deviation 1.


  • shape: A Tensor. Must be one of the following types: int32, int64. The shape of the output tensor.
  • dtype: A tf.DType from: tf.half, tf.bfloat16, tf.float32, tf.float64. The type of the output.
  • seed: An optional int. Defaults to 0. If either seed or seed2 are set to be non-zero, the random number generator is seeded by the given seed. Otherwise, it is seeded by a random seed.
  • seed2: An optional int. Defaults to 0. A second seed to avoid seed collision.
  • name: A name for the operation (optional).


A Tensor of type dtype.
