Computes the max of elements across dimensions of a SparseTensor.

tf.compat.v2.sparse.reduce_max( sp_input, axis=None, keepdims=None, output_is_sparse=False, name=None )

This Op takes a SparseTensor and is the sparse counterpart to `tf.reduce_max()`

. In particular, this Op also returns a dense `Tensor`

if `output_is_sparse`

is `False`

, or a `SparseTensor`

if `output_is_sparse`

is `True`

.

Note:A gradient is not defined for this function, so it can't be used in training models that need gradient descent.

Reduces `sp_input`

along the dimensions given in `axis`

. Unless `keepdims`

is true, the rank of the tensor is reduced by 1 for each entry in `axis`

. If `keepdims`

is true, the reduced dimensions are retained with length 1.

If `axis`

has no entries, all dimensions are reduced, and a tensor with a single element is returned. Additionally, the axes can be negative, similar to the indexing rules in Python.

The values not defined in `sp_input`

don't participate in the reduce max, as opposed to be implicitly assumed 0 -- hence it can return negative values for sparse `axis`

. But, in case there are no values in `axis`

, it will reduce to 0. See second example below.

# 'x' represents [[1, ?, 2] # [?, 3, ?]] # where ? is implicitly-zero. tf.sparse.reduce_max(x) ==> 3 tf.sparse.reduce_max(x, 0) ==> [1, 3, 2] tf.sparse.reduce_max(x, 1) ==> [2, 3] # Can also use -1 as the axis. tf.sparse.reduce_max(x, 1, keepdims=True) ==> [[2], [3]] tf.sparse.reduce_max(x, [0, 1]) ==> 3 # 'y' represents [[-7, ?] # [ 4, 3] # [ ?, ?] tf.sparse.reduce_max(x, 1) ==> [-7, 4, 0]

Args | |
---|---|

`sp_input` | The SparseTensor to reduce. Should have numeric type. |

`axis` | The dimensions to reduce; list or scalar. If `None` (the default), reduces all dimensions. |

`keepdims` | If true, retain reduced dimensions with length 1. |

`output_is_sparse` | If true, returns a `SparseTensor` instead of a dense `Tensor` (the default). |

`name` | A name for the operation (optional). |

Returns | |
---|---|

The reduced Tensor or the reduced SparseTensor if `output_is_sparse` is True. |
