Comparing Topiary-Style Approaches to Headline Generation [chapter]

Ruichao Wang, Nicola Stokes, William P. Doran, Eamonn Newman, Joe Carthy, John Dunnion
2005 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
The Topiary system uses a statistical learning approach to finding topic labels for headlines, while our approach, the LexTrim system, identifies key summary words by analysing the lexical cohesive structure  ...  The performance of these systems is evaluated using the ROUGE evaluation suite on the DUC 2004 news stories collection.  ...  There are three main steps to our technique for identifying topic labels using lexical cohesion analysis.  ...
