Convert JSON-encoded Example records to binary protocol buffer strings.

This op translates a tensor containing Example records, encoded using the standard JSON mapping, into a tensor containing the same records encoded as binary protocol buffers. The resulting tensor can then be fed to any of the other Example-parsing ops.


  • json_examples: A Tensor of type string. Each string is a JSON object serialized according to the JSON mapping of the Example proto.
  • name: A name for the operation (optional).


A Tensor of type string. Each string is a binary Example protocol buffer corresponding to the respective element of json_examples.
