Serializing data is the process of translating data structures or objects to a format that can be stored or transmitted to any entity, and subsequently reconstructed in any environment. It is important for most computing areas, including all those studied in our department (e.g., distributed systems, bioinformatics, data mining, natural language processing, robotics, etc.). In this SmallTalk, the presenter will introduce (1) the problems of data serialization and (2) the Protocol Buffers, a solution for this process launched by Google in 2008.
