Domain-Independent Abstract Generation for Focused Meeting Summarization

Domain-Independent Abstract Generation for Focused Meeting Summarization

This video was recorded at Association for Computational Linguistics (ACL), Sofia 2013. We address the challenge of generating natural language abstractive summaries for spoken meetings in a domain-independent fashion. We apply Multiple-Sequence Alignment to induce abstract generation templates that can be used for different domains. An Overgenerate-and-Rank strategy is utilized to produce and rank candidate abstracts. Experiments using in-domain and out-of-domain training on disparate corpora show that our system uniformly outperforms state-of-the-art supervised extract-based approaches. In addition, human judges rate our system summaries significantly higher than compared systems in fluency and overall quality.
