This is useful to mitigate overfitting (you could see it as a form of random data augmentation). Gaussian Noise (GS) is a natural choice as corruption process for real valued inputs. As it is a regularization layer, it is only active at training time.
layer_gaussian_noise( object, stddev, input_shape = NULL, batch_input_shape = NULL, batch_size = NULL, dtype = NULL, name = NULL, trainable = NULL, weights = NULL )
Model or layer object
float, standard deviation of the noise distribution.
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.
Shapes, including the batch size. For instance,
Fixed batch size for layer
The data type expected by the input, as a string (
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.
Whether the layer weights will be updated during training.
Initial weights for layer.
Arbitrary. Use the keyword argument
of integers, does not include the samples axis) when using this layer as
the first layer in a model.
Same shape as input.
