Why is seeding mandatory for stateless random flipping?
I am implementing custom data augmentation layer in my model where I am trying to use the function
Documentation says this function can,
Randomly flip an image horizontally (left to right) deterministically.
Why do we need deterministic flip? Also, for this function
seed is a mandatory argument.
In data augmentation, I understand that from epoch to epoch, a particular image is fed in different forms. Wouldn’t this force images of the same kind to be supplied?
