tf.compat.v1.keras.initializers.glorot_uniform

The Glorot uniform initializer, also called Xavier uniform initializer.

Inherits From: VarianceScaling

It draws samples from a uniform distribution within [-limit, limit] where limit is sqrt(6 / (fan_in + fan_out)) where fan_in is the number of input units in the weight tensor and fan_out is the number of output units in the weight tensor.

seed A Python integer. Used to create random seeds. See tf.compat.v1.set_random_seed for behavior.
dtype Default data type, used if no dtype argument is provided when calling the initializer. Only floating point types are supported.

Methods

from_config

View source

Instantiates an initializer from a configuration dictionary.

Example:

initializer = RandomUniform(-1, 1)
config = initializer.get_config()
initializer = RandomUniform.from_config(config)

Args
config A Python dictionary. It will typically be the output of get_config.

Returns
An Initializer instance.

get_config

View source

Returns the configuration of the initializer as a JSON-serializable dict.

Returns
A JSON-serializable Python dict.
