 Types of summarizations

  • Document summarization: Under this type, the software shortens the sentences to frame short paragraphs.
  • Key phrase extraction: Under this type, the software focuses on keywords and phrases to ensure that these are well tagged in the paragraph.

 How does it work?

There are primarily two ways in which these summarizing tools work:

  • One way is to use the extractive method, where a subset of existing words is selected from the original text to frame the summaries.
  • Another way of doing the same is an abstractive method, under which semantic representation is built, and the software uses the language generation techniques in order to frame the summary of the original text. Unlike the previous one, the summary generated through abstractive method may have various new words that were not there in the original text.

The software’s are designed in a way that while preparing the summary; it considers the various factors like:

  • Length of the document
  • The style used in writing the original content
  • Syntax

Considering all these factors, the meaningful and useful summary is created that looks more like a handwritten summary.
