Algorithm

Our aim is to provide concise and coherent summaries. While we started with a relatively simple extraction algorithm for general news, we have now launched a bold and ambitious effort to take summarisation technology far beyond its present state. Our in-house research makes innovative use of machine learning and natural language processing, using evaluation metrics that show our technology to be highly effective.

Summly has joined forces with the best people and tech organizations in this field to push the envelope through massive innovation. We think this is just the beginning of what can be done with summarization technology.

"Summly came to SRI International with a core concept to solve the information overload problem, which is especially challenging for mobile devices because of their limited screen size," said David Israel, Ph.D., program director in the Artificial Intelligence Center at SRI International. "Building on SRI's expertise in machine learning and natural language processing, the Summly team is creating a new type of content, providing understandable and relevant summaries tailored for mobile devices."
