chainer.initializers.generate_array(initializer, shape, xp, dtype=None)[source]

Return initialized array.

The algorithms used to make the new values depend on the concrete derived classes. If the initializer has the dtype attribute, it is used to construct the array. Otherwise, chainer.config.dtype is used instead. See Configuring Chainer for the dtype config.

  • initializer – A callable object that takes numpy.ndarray or cupy.ndarray and edits its value.
  • shape (tuple) – Shape of a return array.
  • xp (module) – cupy or numpy.
  • dtype – Dtype specifier. If omitted, initializer.dtype is used.

An initialized array.

Return type:

numpy.ndarray or cupy.ndarray
