I have been using the introductory example of matrix multiplication in TensorFlow.

matrix1 = tf.constant([[3., 3.]])

matrix2 = tf.constant([[2.],[2.]])

product = tf.matmul(matrix1, matrix2)

When I print the product, it is displaying it as a Tensor object:

<tensorflow.python.framework.ops.Tensor object at 0x10470fcd0>

But how do I know the value of the product?

The following doesn't help:

print product Tensor("MatMul:0", shape=TensorShape([Dimension(1), Dimension(1)]), dtype=float32)

I know that graphs run on Sessions, but isn't there any way I can check the output of a Tensorobject without running the graph in a session?
