Optimization parameters for stochastic gradient descent for TPU embeddings.

Pass this to tf.tpu.experimental.embedding.TPUEmbedding via the optimizer argument to set the global optimizer and its parameters:

embedding = tf.tpu.experimental.embedding.TPUEmbedding(

This can also be used in a tf.tpu.experimental.embedding.TableConfig as the optimizer parameter to set a table specific optimizer. This will override the optimizer and parameters for global embedding optimizer defined above:

table_one = tf.tpu.experimental.embedding.TableConfig(
table_two = tf.tpu.experimental.embedding.TableConfig(

feature_config = (

embedding = tf.tpu.experimental.embedding.TPUEmbedding(

In the above example, the first feature will be looked up in a table that has a learning rate of 0.2 while the second feature will be looked up in a table that has a learning rate of 0.1.

See 'tensorflow/core/protobuf/tpu/optimization_parameters.proto' for a complete description of these parameters and their impacts on the optimizer algorithm.

learning_rate The learning rate. It should be a floating point value or a callable taking no arguments for a dynamic learning rate.
clip_weight_min the minimum value to clip by; None means -infinity.
clip_weight_max the maximum value to clip by; None means +infinity.
weight_decay_factor amount of weight decay to apply; None means that the weights are not decayed. Weights are decayed by multiplying the weight by this factor each step.
multiply_weight_decay_factor_by_learning_rate if true, weight_decay_factor is multiplied by the current learning rate.
clipvalue Controls clipping of the gradient. Set to either a single positive scalar value to get clipping or a tiple of scalar values (min, max) to set a separate maximum or minimum. If one of the two entries is None, then there will be no clipping that direction. Note if this is set, you may see a decrease in performance as gradient accumulation will be enabled (it is normally off for SGD as it has no affect on accuracy). See 'tensorflow/core/protobuf/tpu/optimization_parameters.proto' for more information on gradient accumulation and its impact on tpu embeddings.
