ASPECTNEWS: Aspect-Oriented Summarization of News Documents

  title={ASPECTNEWS: Aspect-Oriented Summarization of News Documents},
  author={Ojas Ahuja and Jiacheng Xu and Akshay Kumar Gupta and Kevin Horecka and Greg Durrett},
Generic summaries try to cover an entire document and query-based summaries try to answer document-specific questions. But real users’ needs often fall in between these extremes and correspond to aspects, high-level topics discussed among similar types of documents. In this paper, we collect a dataset of realistic aspect-oriented summaries, AspectNews, which covers different subtopics about articles in news sub-domains. We annotate data across two domains of articles, earthquakes and fraud… 


Inducing Document Structure for Aspect-based Summarization
It is shown that the benefit of the learnt document structure can leverage the structure to produce both abstractive and extractive aspect-based summaries, and that structure is particularly advantageous for summarizing long documents.
Coarse-to-Fine Query Focused Multi-Document Summarization
This work proposes a coarse-to-fine modeling framework which employs progressively more accurate modules for estimating whether text segments are relevant, likely to contain an answer, and central and presents an instantiation of this framework with a trained evidence estimator.
Generating Topic-Oriented Summaries Using Neural Attention
An attention based RNN framework to generate multiple summaries of a single document tuned to different topics of interest is proposed and the results suggest that the attention of generative networks can be successfully biased to look at sentences relevant to a topic and effectively used to generate topic-tuned summaries.
Summarizing Text on Any Aspects: A Knowledge-Informed Weakly-Supervised Approach
A new weak supervision construction method and an aspect modeling scheme are developed that integrate rich external knowledge sources such as ConceptNet and Wikipedia and achieves performance boosts on summarizing both real and synthetic documents given pre-defined or arbitrary aspects.
Query-Chain Focused Summarization
This work introduces a new task, Query-Chain Summarization, which combines aspects of the two previous tasks: starting from a given document set, increasingly specific queries are considered, and a new summary is produced at each step, and Evaluation indicates the algorithm improves on strong baselines.
Don’t Give Me the Details, Just the Summary! Topic-Aware Convolutional Neural Networks for Extreme Summarization
A novel abstractive model is proposed which is conditioned on the article’s topics and based entirely on convolutional neural networks, outperforming an oracle extractive system and state-of-the-art abstractive approaches when evaluated automatically and by humans.
CTRLsum: Towards Generic Controllable Text Summarization
CTRLsum enables users to control multiple aspects of generated summaries by interacting with the summarization system through textual input in the form of a set of keywords or descriptive prompts, and achieves state-of-the-art results on the CNN/DailyMail dataset.
Applying regression models to query-focused multi-document summarization
Summarizing Opinions: Aspect Extraction Meets Sentiment Prediction and They Are Both Weakly Supervised
An opinion summarization dataset is introduced that includes a training set of product reviews from six diverse domains and human-annotated development and test sets with gold standard aspect annotations, salience labels, and opinion summaries.
Extending Multi-Document Summarization Evaluation to the Interactive Setting
This paper develops an end-to-end evaluation framework for interactive summarization, focusing on expansion-based interaction, which considers the accumulating information along a user session.
