tf.keras.backend.shape

TensorFlow 2 version View source on GitHub

Returns the symbolic shape of a tensor or variable.

Aliases:

tf.keras.backend.shape(x)

Arguments:

  • x: A tensor or variable.

Returns:

A symbolic shape (which is itself a tensor).

Examples:

# TensorFlow example
>>> from keras import backend as K
>>> tf_session = K.get_session()
>>> val = np.array([[1, 2], [3, 4]])
>>> kvar = K.variable(value=val)
>>> input = keras.backend.placeholder(shape=(2, 4, 5))
>>> K.shape(kvar)
<tf.Tensor 'Shape_8:0' shape=(2,) dtype=int32>
>>> K.shape(input)
<tf.Tensor 'Shape_9:0' shape=(3,) dtype=int32>
# To get integer shape (Instead, you can use K.int_shape(x))
>>> K.shape(kvar).eval(session=tf_session)
array([2, 2], dtype=int32)
>>> K.shape(input).eval(session=tf_session)
array([2, 4, 5], dtype=int32)
