"""Contains code for the DataProvider.
A DataProvider is a class which provides some predefined data types from some
source (TFRecord, etc). The most basic function of a
data provider is the `Get` operation where one requests one or more types of
data, or 'items':
provider.get(items=['image', 'sentence', 'class'])
More concretely, a data provider (a subclass of BaseDataProvider) returns a
single tensor for each requested item (data type):
provider = MyDataProvider(...)
image, sentence, clazz = provider.get(['image', 'sentence', 'class'])
In this example, the provider `MyDataProvider` must know how to load each item.
A data provider may be written in a way that the logic necessary to map from
each item to tensor is completely encapsulated within the data_provider itself.
