Class BasicLSTMCell

DEPRECATED: Please use tf.compat.v1.nn.rnn_cell.LSTMCell instead.

Inherits From: LayerRNNCell

Aliases:

  • Class tf.compat.v1.nn.rnn_cell.BasicLSTMCell
  • Class tf.contrib.rnn.BasicLSTMCell

Basic LSTM recurrent network cell.

The implementation is based on: http://arxiv.org/abs/1409.2329.

We add forget_bias (default: 1) to the biases of the forget gate in order to reduce the scale of forgetting in the beginning of the training.

It does not allow cell clipping, a projection layer, and does not use peep-hole connections: it is the basic baseline.

For advanced models, please use the full tf.compat.v1.nn.rnn_cell.LSTMCell that follows.

Note that this cell is not optimized for performance. Please use tf.contrib.cudnn_rnn.CudnnLSTM for better performance on GPU, or tf.contrib.rnn.LSTMBlockCell and tf.contrib.rnn.LSTMBlockFusedCell for better performance on CPU.

__init__(
    num_units,
    forget_bias=1.0,
    state_is_tuple=True,
    activation=None,
    reuse=None,
    name=None,
    dtype=None,
    **kwargs
)

Initialize the basic LSTM cell. (deprecated)

Args:

  • num_units: int, The number of units in the LSTM cell.
  • forget_bias: float, The bias added to forget gates (see above). Must set to 0.0 manually when restoring from CudnnLSTM-trained checkpoints.
  • state_is_tuple: If True, accepted and returned states are 2-tuples of the c_state and m_state. If False, they are concatenated along the column axis. The latter behavior will soon be deprecated.
  • activation: Activation function of the inner states. Default: tanh. It could also be string that is within Keras activation function names.
  • reuse: (optional) Python boolean describing whether to reuse variables in an existing scope. If not True, and the existing scope already has the given variables, an error is raised.
  • name: String, the name of the layer. Layers with the same name will share weights, but to avoid mistakes we require reuse=True in such cases.
  • dtype: Default dtype of the layer (default of None means use the type of the first input). Required when build is called before call.
  • **kwargs: Dict, keyword named properties for common layer attributes, like trainable etc when constructing the cell from configs of get_config(). When restoring from CudnnLSTM-trained checkpoints, must use CudnnCompatibleLSTMCell instead.

    batch_size=None,
    dtype=None
)

zero_state

View source

zero_state(
    batch_size,
    dtype
)

Return zero-filled state tensor(s).

Args:

  • batch_size: int, float, or unit Tensor representing the batch size.
  • dtype: the data type to use for the state.

Returns:

If state_size is an int or TensorShape, then the return value is a N-D tensor of shape [batch_size, state_size] filled with zeros.

If state_size is a nested list or tuple, then the return value is a nested list or tuple (of the same structure) of 2-D tensors with the shapes [batch_size, s] for each s in state_size.
