Computes the element-wise (weighted) mean of the given tensors.

tf.metrics.mean_tensor( values, weights=None, metrics_collections=None, updates_collections=None, name=None )

In contrast to the `mean`

function which returns a scalar with the mean, this function returns an average tensor with the same shape as the input tensors.

The `mean_tensor`

function creates two local variables, `total_tensor`

and `count_tensor`

that are used to compute the average of `values`

. This average is ultimately returned as `mean`

which is an idempotent operation that simply divides `total`

by `count`

.

For estimation of the metric over a stream of data, the function creates an `update_op`

operation that updates these variables and returns the `mean`

. `update_op`

increments `total`

with the reduced sum of the product of `values`

and `weights`

, and it increments `count`

with the reduced sum of `weights`

.

If `weights`

is `None`

, weights default to 1. Use weights of 0 to mask values.

Args | |
---|---|

`values` | A `Tensor` of arbitrary dimensions. |

`weights` | Optional `Tensor` whose rank is either 0, or the same rank as `values` , and must be broadcastable to `values` (i.e., all dimensions must be either `1` , or the same as the corresponding `values` dimension). |

`metrics_collections` | An optional list of collections that `mean` should be added to. |

`updates_collections` | An optional list of collections that `update_op` should be added to. |

`name` | An optional variable_scope name. |

Returns | |
---|---|

`mean` | A float `Tensor` representing the current mean, the value of `total` divided by `count` . |

`update_op` | An operation that increments the `total` and `count` variables appropriately and whose value matches `mean_value` . |

Raises | |
---|---|

`ValueError` | If `weights` is not `None` and its shape doesn't match `values` , or if either `metrics_collections` or `updates_collections` are not a list or tuple. |

`RuntimeError` | If eager execution is enabled. |
