All Tensors Secretly Wish to be Themselves

Welcome to the world of tensors in AI. It is now time to get used to the curse of dimensionality. It is also an industry standard practice to flatten tensors all the way to matrices to leverage the highly optimized libraries for matrix multiplication (MM) or MM accelerators (MMAs), even though tensors are considered to be the most fundamental data type in all major AI frameworks. Matrices are generally considered to be special cases of tensors by the AI community.
