Text summarizers are capable of extracting the most significant information from source papers and converting it into a reader-friendly summary.
The quantity of information available on the internet is unlimited. Consider a typical college student who must read hundreds of pages of documentation each semester. This is why text summarization is required.
The primary goal of text summarizing is to extract the most precise and helpful information from a huge document while removing unnecessary or less important material.
Text summarization can be done manually, which is time-consuming, or automatically using online summarizing tools and AIs, which is faster and a superior alternative.
2. Text Summarization Based on Abstraction
Abstraction-based summary is more difficult to master than extraction-based summarization. It extracts the original and most essential sentence from a text document and replaces it with appropriate synonyms. As a result, it will appear to be an entirely new text yet will have the same meaning as the original text.
That is why it is difficult since it is difficult to find the proper synonyms and rephrase while maintaining the same idea. For example, if the original text is "Peter was hurriedly descending down the stairs. He slipped, fell, and shattered his ankle," the abstraction summary would be "Peter broke his ankle after slipping while rushing down the stairs."
