Creates a dataset that deterministically chooses elements from datasets.

For example, given the following datasets:

datasets = ["foo").repeat(),

# Define a dataset containing `[0, 1, 2, 0, 1, 2, 0, 1, 2]`.
choice_dataset =

result =, choice_dataset)

The elements of result will be:

"foo", "bar", "baz", "foo", "bar", "baz", "foo", "bar", "baz"

datasets A list of objects with compatible structure.
choice_dataset A of scalar tf.int64 tensors between 0 and len(datasets) - 1.

A dataset that interleaves elements from datasets according to the values of choice_dataset.

TypeError If the datasets or choice_dataset arguments have the wrong type.
