# reduce_any¶

paddle.fluid.layers.nn. reduce_any ( input, dim=None, keep_dim=False, name=None ) [source]

This OP computes the `logical or` of tensor elements over the given dimension, and output the result.

Parameters
• input (Tensor) – the input tensor, it’s data type should be bool.

• dim (list|int|optional) – The dimension along which the logical and is computed. If `None`, compute the logical and over all elements of `input` and return a Tensor variable with a single element, otherwise must be in the range \([-rank(input), rank(input))\). If \(dim[i] < 0\), the dimension to reduce is \(rank + dim[i]\). The default value is None.

• keep_dim (bool) – Whether to reserve the reduced dimension in the output Tensor. The result tensor will have one fewer dimension than the `input` unless `keep_dim` is true. The default value is False.

• name (str, optional) – Name for the operation (optional, default is None). For more information, please refer to Name.

Returns

The reduced tensor variable with `logical or` in given dims.

Return type

Tensor, the output data type is bool.

Examples

```import paddle
import numpy as np

# x is a bool Tensor variable with following elements:
#    [[True, False]
#     [False, False]]
x = fluid.layers.assign(np.array([[1, 0], [0, 0]], dtype='int32'))
x = fluid.layers.cast(x, 'bool')

out = fluid.layers.reduce_any(x)  # True
out = fluid.layers.reduce_any(x, dim=0)  # [True, False]
out = fluid.layers.reduce_any(x, dim=-1)  # [True, False]
# keep_dim=False, x.shape=(2,2), out.shape=(2,)

out = fluid.layers.reduce_any(x, dim=1,
keep_dim=True)  # [[True], [False]]
# keep_dim=True, x.shape=(2,2), out.shape=(2,1)
```
