From Text Summarisation to Style-Specific Summarisation for Broadcast News [chapter]

Heidi Christensen, BalaKrishna Kolluru, Yoshihiko Gotoh, Steve Renals
2004 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
We show that the portability of traditional text summarisation features to broadcast news is dependent on the diffusiveness of the information in the broadcast news story.  ...  An analysis of two categories of news stories (containing only read speech or including some spontaneous speech) demonstrates the importance of the style and the quality of the transcript, when extracting  ...  The cuhtk-s1 system in the 1999 TREC-8 SDR evaluation. 8 The shef-s1 system in the 1999 TREC-8 SDR evaluation.  ...

Effect of Segmentation Method on Video Retrieval Performance

D. Grangier, A. Vinciarelli
2005 IEEE International Conference on Multimedia and Expo  
Moreover, in the case where manually segmented data are available for training, the approach combining the different modalities can lead to IR results close to those obtained with a manual segmentation  ...  The results suggest that even with the sliding window segmentation, acceptable performance can be obtained on a broadcast news retrieval task.  ...  For a more complete evaluation, we also used a second method (initially introduced in the context of TREC SDR [4] ) in which a system that outputs a ranking of time pointers is evaluated.  ...

H. Christensen, Y. Gotoh, B. Kolluru, S. Renals
2003 IEEE Workshop on Automatic Speech Recognition and Understanding (IEEE Cat. No.03EX721)  
However, the quality of the speech transcripts as well as the difference in information structure between broadcast and newspaper news affect the usability of the individual features.  ...  In this paper we report on a series of experiments which compare the effect of individual features on both text and speech summarisation, the effect of basing the speech summaries on automatic speech recognition  ...  Figure 3 shows the ROC curves for speech summarisers based on transcripts from six different ASR systems (produced for the TREC-8 SDR evaluation), along with the manual transcript.  ...
