Invert (flip) each bit of supported types; for example, type uint8 value 01010101 becomes 10101010.

Flip each bit of supported types. For example, type int8 (decimal 2) binary 00000010 becomes (decimal -3) binary 11111101. This operation is performed on each element of the tensor argument x.

x A Tensor. Must be one of the following types: int8, int16, int32, int64, uint8, uint16, uint32, uint64.
name A name for the operation (optional).

A Tensor. Has the same type as x.
