cast([0.9, 1.3], dtype='int32') = [0, 1]
cast([1e20, 11.1], dtype='float16') = [inf, 11.09375]
cast([300, 11.1, 10.9, -1, -3], dtype='uint8') = [44, 11, 10, 255, 253]

Defined in src/operator/tensor/elemwise_unary_op_basic.cc:L592

Parameters:
  • data (NDArray) – The input.
  • dtype ({'float16', 'float32', 'float64', 'int32', 'int64', 'int8', 'uint8'}, required) – Output data type.
  • out (NDArray, optional) – The output NDArray to hold the result.
Returns:

out – The output of this function.

Return type:
