A parameter that is not initialized.
Unitialized Parameters are a a special case of
torch.nn.Parameterwhere the shape of the data is still unknown.
torch.nn.Parameter, uninitialized parameters hold no data and attempting to access some properties, like their shape, will throw a runtime error. The only operations that can be performed on a uninitialized parameter are changing its datatype, moving it to a different device and converting it to a regular
materialize(shape, device=None, dtype=None)¶
Create a Parameter with the same properties of the uninitialized one. Given a shape, it materializes a parameter in the same device and with the same dtype as the current one or the specified ones in the arguments.
shape – (tuple): the shape for the materialized tensor.
torch.device) – the desired device of the parameters and buffers in this module. Optional.
torch.dtype) – the desired floating point type of the floating point parameters and buffers in this module. Optional.
