Single Document Text Summarization of a Resource-Poor Language using an Unsupervised Technique

2019 International Journal of Engineering and Advanced Technology  
Automatic text summarization of a resource-poor language is a challenging task. Unsupervised extractive techniques are often preferred for such languages due to scarcity of resources. Latent Semantic Analysis (LSA) is an unsupervised technique which automatically identifies semantically important sentences from a text document. Two methods based on Latent Semantic Analysis have been evaluated on two datasets of a resource-poor language using Singular Value Decomposition (SVD) on different
