tf.keras.initializers.LecunNormal

Lecun normal initializer.

Inherits From: VarianceScaling, Initializer

Also available via the shortcut function tf.keras.initializers.lecun_normal.

Initializers allow you to pre-specify an initialization strategy, encoded in the Initializer object, without knowing the shape and dtype of the variable being initialized.

Draws samples from a truncated normal distribution centered on 0 with stddev = sqrt(1 / fan_in) where fan_in is the number of input units in the weight tensor.

Examples:

# Standalone usage:
initializer = tf.keras.initializers.LecunNormal()
values = initializer(shape=(2, 2))
# Usage in a Keras layer:
initializer = tf.keras.initializers.LecunNormal()
layer = tf.keras.layers.Dense(3, kernel_initializer=initializer)

seed A Python integer. Used to seed the random generator.

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, the output of get_config.

Returns
A tf.keras.initializers.Initializer instance.

get_config

View source

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

Returns
A JSON-serializable Python dict.

__call__

View source

Returns a tensor object initialized as specified by the initializer.

Args
shape Shape of the tensor.
dtype Optional dtype of the tensor. Only floating point types are supported. If not specified, tf.keras.backend.floatx() is used, which default to float32 unless you configured it otherwise (via tf.keras.backend.set_floatx(float_dtype))
**kwargs Additional keyword arguments.
