What is a tensor
There are many ways to define tensor. Here we only discuss the concepts in the field of artificial intelligence.
In the field of artificial intelligence, the definition is relatively simple. TensorFlow is defined as follows:
A tensor is a generalization of vectors and matrices to potentially higher dimensions.
A simple translation is:Tensors are multidimensional arrays, the purpose of which is to push vectors and matrices to higher dimensions.
Relationship of scalar, vector, matrix, tensor
These 4 concepts are constantly rising in dimensionality. It is easier to understand the metaphorical explanation with the concept of point-line polyhedron:
