A layer that produces a dense Tensor based on given feature_columns.

layer_dense_features(
object,
feature_columns,
name = NULL,
trainable = NULL,
input_shape = NULL,
batch_input_shape = NULL,
batch_size = NULL,
dtype = NULL,
weights = NULL
)

## Arguments

object

What to compose the new Layer instance with. Typically a Sequential model or a Tensor (e.g., as returned by layer_input()). The return value depends on object. If object is:

• missing or NULL, the Layer instance is returned.

• a Sequential model, the model with an additional layer is returned.

• a Tensor, the output tensor from layer_instance(object) is returned.

feature_columns

An iterable containing the FeatureColumns to use as inputs to your model. All items should be instances of classes derived from DenseColumn such as numeric_column, embedding_column, bucketized_column, indicator_column. If you have categorical features, you can wrap them with an embedding_column or indicator_column. See tfestimators::feature_columns().

name

An optional name string for the layer. Should be unique in a model (do not reuse the same name twice). It will be autogenerated if it isn't provided.

trainable

Whether the layer weights will be updated during training.

input_shape

Dimensionality of the input (integer) not including the samples axis. This argument is required when using this layer as the first layer in a model.

batch_input_shape

Shapes, including the batch size. For instance, batch_input_shape=c(10, 32) indicates that the expected input will be batches of 10 32-dimensional vectors. batch_input_shape=list(NULL, 32) indicates batches of an arbitrary number of 32-dimensional vectors.

batch_size

Fixed batch size for layer

dtype

The data type expected by the input, as a string (float32, float64, int32...)

weights

Initial weights for layer.
