An Op to sum inputs across replicated TPU instances.

Each instance supplies its own input.

For example, suppose there are 8 TPU instances: [A, B, C, D, E, F, G, H]. Passing group_assignment=[[0,2,4,6],[1,3,5,7]] sets A, C, E, G as group 0, and B, D, F, H as group 1. Thus we get the outputs: [A+C+E+G, B+D+F+H, A+C+E+G, B+D+F+H, A+C+E+G, B+D+F+H, A+C+E+G, B+D+F+H].

input A Tensor. Must be one of the following types: half, bfloat16, float32, int32, uint32. The local input to the sum.
group_assignment A Tensor of type int32. An int32 tensor with shape [num_groups, num_replicas_per_group]. group_assignment[i] represents the replica ids in the ith subgroup.
name A name for the operation (optional).

A Tensor. Has the same type as input.
