In TensorFlow, an epoch refers to a complete iteration through the entire training dataset. It is a single pass of the entire dataset during model training. In each epoch, the model processes the entire training dataset, calculates the loss function, and updates the model's parameters. The number of epochs is typically determined by the user and is specified before training begins. Training for more epochs allows the model to learn more from the dataset, but it also increases the computational time.
