Target Hypergraph Serialization

Project leader: Kenneth Heafield

Desirable skills for participants: C++, Moses internals

Often, we repeatedly decode the same sentences with different feature weights. Usually, this happens within MERT, MIRA, or PRO, our version of Godot. This project will save time by parsing only once instead of every iteration. To do so, we need to develop an efficient (preferably binary) serialization format, modify Moses to generate it without doing cube pruning, and modify Moses to read this format without redoing parsing.
