fn quantize_linear(self: @Tensor<T>, y_scale: @Tensor<T>, y_zero_point: @Tensor<T>) -> Tensor::<Q>;

Quantizes a Tensor using linear quantization.

The linear quantization operator. It consumes a high precision tensor, a scale, and a zero point to compute the low precision / quantized tensor. The scale factor and zero point must have same shape, and can be either a scalar for per-tensor / per layer quantization, or a 1-D tensor for per-axis quantization. The quantization formula is y = saturate ((x / y_scale) + y_zero_point). For saturation, it saturates to [-128, 127]. For (x / y_scale), it's rounding to the nearest even.


  • self(@Tensor<T>) - The input tensor.

  • y_scale(@Tensor<T>) - Scale for doing quantization to get y.

  • y_zero_point(@Tensor<T>) - Zero point for doing quantization to get y.


A new Tensor<Q> with the same shape as the input tensor, containing the quantized values.
