- class torch.nn.parameter.UninitializedBuffer(requires_grad=False, device=None, dtype=None)[source]¶
A buffer that is not initialized.
Uninitialized Buffer is a a special case of
torch.Tensorwhere the shape of the data is still unknown.
torch.Tensor, 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
The default device or dtype to use when the buffer is materialized can be set during construction using e.g.
