 AUTOMATIC SUMMARIZATION

 Inderjeet Mani

John Benjamins Pub Co; ISBN: 1588110591 (hardcover), 1588110605 (paperback)


With the explosion in the quantity of on-line text and multimedia
information in recent years, there has been a renewed interest in
automatic summarization. This book provides a systematic introduction
to the field, explaining basic definitions, the strategies used by
human summarizers, and automatic methods that leverage linguistic and
statistical knowledge to produce extracts and abstracts. Drawing from
a wealth of research in artificial intelligence, natural language
processing, and information retrieval, the book also includes detailed
assessments of evaluation methods and new topics such as
multi-document and multimedia summarization.

Previous automatic summarization books have been either collections of
specialized papers, or else authored books with only a chapter or two
devoted to the field as a whole. This is the first textbook on the
subject, based on teaching materials used in two one-semester
courses. To further help the student reader, the book includes
detailed case studies, accompanied by end-of-chapter reviews and an
extensive glossary.

The book is intended for students and researchers, as well as
information technology managers, librarians, and anyone else
interested in the subject.
