Add a densely-connected NN layer to an output


Implements the operation: output = activation(dot(input, kernel) + bias) where activation is the element-wise activation function passed as the activation argument, kernel is a weights matrix created by the layer, and bias is a bias vector created by the layer (only applicable if use_bias is TRUE). Note: if the input to the layer has a rank greater than 2, then it is flattened prior to the initial dot product with kernel.


  activation = NULL, 
  use_bias = TRUE, 
  kernel_initializer = "glorot_uniform", 
  bias_initializer = "zeros", 
  kernel_regularizer = NULL, 
  bias_regularizer = NULL, 
  activity_regularizer = NULL, 
  kernel_constraint = NULL, 
  bias_constraint = NULL, 
  input_shape = NULL, 
  batch_input_shape = NULL, 
  batch_size = NULL, 
  dtype = NULL, 
  name = NULL, 
  trainable = NULL, 
  weights = NULL 


Arguments Description
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.
units Positive integer, dimensionality of the output space.
activation Name of activation function to use. If you don’t specify anything, no activation is applied (ie. “linear” activation: a(x) = x).
use_bias Whether the layer uses a bias vector.
kernel_initializer Initializer for the kernel weights matrix.
bias_initializer Initializer for the bias vector.
kernel_regularizer Regularizer function applied to the kernel weights matrix.
bias_regularizer Regularizer function applied to the bias vector.
activity_regularizer Regularizer function applied to the output of the layer (its “activation”)..
kernel_constraint Constraint function applied to the kernel weights matrix.
bias_constraint Constraint function applied to the bias vector.
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…)
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.
weights Initial weights for layer.


Input and Output Shapes

Input shape: nD tensor with shape: (batch_size, ..., input_dim). The most common situation would be a 2D input with shape (batch_size, input_dim). Output shape: nD tensor with shape: (batch_size, ..., units). For instance, for a 2D input with shape (batch_size, input_dim), the output would have shape (batch_size, unit).
