paddle.fluid.layers.nn. uniform_random ( shape, dtype='float32', min=- 1.0, max=1.0, seed=0, name=None ) [source]

Warning: API “paddle.fluid.layers.nn.uniform_random” is deprecated since 2.0.0, and will be removed in future versions. Please use “paddle.uniform” instead.

This OP returns a Tensor filled with random values sampled from a uniform distribution in the range [min, max), with shape and dtype.

Examples:

Input:
  shape = [1, 2]

Output:
  result=[[0.8505902, 0.8397286]]
Args:
shape(list|tuple|Tensor): The shape of the output Tensor. If shape

is a list or tuple, the elements of it should be integers or Tensors (with the shape [1], and the data type int32 or int64). If shape is a Tensor, it should be a 1-D Tensor(with the data type int32 or int64).

dtype(str|np.dtype|core.VarDesc.VarType, optional): The data type of

the output Tensor. Supported data types: float32, float64. Default is float32.

min(float|int, optional): The lower bound on the range of random values

to generate, min is included in the range. Default is -1.0.

max(float|int, optional): The upper bound on the range of random values

to generate, max is excluded in the range. Default is 1.0.

seed(int, optional): Random seed used for generating samples. 0 means

use a seed generated by the system. Note that if seed is not 0, this operator will always generate the same random numbers every time. Default is 0.

name(str, optional): The default value is None. Normally there is no

need for user to set this property. For more information, please refer to Name.

Returns:

Tensor: A Tensor filled with random values sampled from a uniform distribution in the range [min, max), with shape and dtype.

Raises:

TypeError: If shape is not list, tuple, Tensor. TypeError: If dtype is not float32, float64.

#  [ 0.5864527,   0.6607096,  -0.8886161 ]]

# example 3:
# attr shape is a Tensor, the data type must be int64 or int32.
var_shape = fluid.data(name='var_shape', shape=[2], dtype="int64")
result_3 = fluid.layers.uniform_random(var_shape)
# if var_shape's value is [2, 3]
# result_3 is:
# [[-0.8517412,  -0.4006908,   0.2551912 ],
#  [ 0.3364414,   0.36278176, -0.16085452]]
