mx.symbol.SliceChannel

Description

Splits an array along a particular axis into multiple sub-arrays.

Note

SliceChannel is deprecated. Use split instead.

Note that num_outputs should evenly divide the length of the axis along which to split the array.

Example:

x  = [[[ 1.]
[ 2.]]
[[ 3.]
[ 4.]]
[[ 5.]
[ 6.]]]
x.shape = (3, 2, 1)

y = split(x, axis=1, num_outputs=2) // a list of 2 arrays with shape (3, 1, 1)
y = [[[ 1.]]
[[ 3.]]
[[ 5.]]]

[[[ 2.]]
[[ 4.]]
[[ 6.]]]

y[0].shape = (3, 1, 1)

z = split(x, axis=0, num_outputs=3) // a list of 3 arrays with shape (1, 2, 1)
z = [[[ 1.]
[ 2.]]]

[[[ 3.]
[ 4.]]]

[[[ 5.]
[ 6.]]]

z[0].shape = (1, 2, 1)

`squeeze_axis=1` removes the axis with length 1 from the shapes of the output arrays.
**Note** that setting `squeeze_axis` to ``1`` removes axis with length 1 only
along the `axis` which it is split.
Also `squeeze_axis` can be set to true only if ``input.shape[axis] == num_outputs``.

Example:

z = split(x, axis=0, num_outputs=3, squeeze_axis=1) // a list of 3 arrays with shape (2, 1)
z = [[ 1.]
[ 2.]]

[[ 3.]
[ 4.]]

[[ 5.]
[ 6.]]
z[0].shape = (2 ,1 )

Usage

mx.symbol.SliceChannel(...)

Arguments

Argument

Description

data

NDArray-or-Symbol.

The input

num.outputs

int, required.

Number of splits. Note that this should evenly divide the length of the axis.

axis

int, optional, default=‘1’.

Axis along which to split.

squeeze.axis

boolean, optional, default=0.

If true, Removes the axis with length 1 from the shapes of the output arrays. Note that setting squeeze_axis to true removes axis with length 1 only along the axis which it is split. Also squeeze_axis can be set to true only if input.shape[axis] == num_outputs.

name

string, optional.

Name of the resulting symbol.
