ACM – Attribute Conditioning for Abstractive Multi Document Summarization [article]

Aiswarya Sankar, Ankit Chadha
2022 arXiv   pre-print
A challenge that arises with multi document summarization which is not prevalent in single document summarization is the need to effectively summarize multiple documents that might have conflicting polarity  ...  Each of these approaches has primarily focused on the issues of multi document information synthesis and attention based approaches to extract salient information.  ...  Despite the advances made with these approaches, a significant challenge remains in multi document summarization with respect to how to deal with contradictory information present in the multiple source  ...

Query Snowball: A Co-occurrence-based Approach to Multi-document Summarization for Question Answering

Hajime Morita, Tetsuya Sakai, Manabu Okumura
2012 IPSJ Online Transactions  
We propose a new method for query-oriented extractive multi-document summarization.  ...  To enrich the information need representation of a given query, we build a co-occurrence graph to obtain words that augment the original query terms.  ...  In particular, query-oriented multi-document summarization is useful for helping the user satisfy his information need efficiently by gathering important pieces of information from multiple documents.  ...

This paper describes a novel approach for multi-document update summarization. The best summary is defined as one of which has the minimal information distance to the entire document set.  ...  And the best update summary has the minimal conditional information distance to a document cluster given that a prior document cluster has already been read.  ...  The best summary S best should satisfy the constraint as follows: S best = arg min S i D max (B i , S|A) (8) If m = 0 (A = φ), it will be a traditional multi-document summarization problem.  ...
