step_shared_embeddings_columnR Documentation

Creates shared embeddings for categorical columns

Description

This is similar to step_embedding_column, except that it produces a list of embedding columns that share the same embedding weights.

Usage

step_shared_embeddings_column(
  spec,
  ...,
  dimension,
  combiner = "mean",
  initializer = NULL,
  shared_embedding_collection_name = NULL,
  ckpt_to_load_from = NULL,
  tensor_name_in_ckpt = NULL,
  max_norm = NULL,
  trainable = TRUE
)

Arguments

spec

A feature specification created with feature_spec().

...

Comma separated list of variable names to apply the step. selectors can also be used.

dimension

An integer specifying dimension of the embedding, must be > 0. Can also be a function of the size of the vocabulary.

combiner

A string specifying how to reduce if there are multiple entries in a single row. Currently 'mean', 'sqrtn' and 'sum' are supported, with 'mean' the default. 'sqrtn' often achieves good accuracy, in particular with bag-of-words columns. Each of this can be thought as example level normalizations on the column. For more information, see tf.embedding_lookup_sparse.

initializer

A variable initializer function to be used in embedding variable initialization. If not specified, defaults to tf.truncated_normal_initializer with mean 0.0 and standard deviation 1/sqrt(dimension).

shared_embedding_collection_name

Optional collective name of these columns. If not given, a reasonable name will be chosen based on the names of categorical_columns.

ckpt_to_load_from

String representing checkpoint name/pattern from which to restore column weights. Required if tensor_name_in_ckpt is not NULL.

tensor_name_in_ckpt

Name of the Tensor in ckpt_to_load_from from which to restore the column weights. Required if ckpt_to_load_from is not NULL.

max_norm

If not NULL, embedding values are l2-normalized to this value.

trainable

Whether or not the embedding is trainable. Default is TRUE.

Value

a FeatureSpec object.

Note

Does not work in the eager mode.
