Salience Estimation via Variational Auto-Encoders for Multi-Document Summarization


We propose a new unsupervised sentence salience framework for Multi-Document Summarization (MDS), which can be divided into two components: latent semantic modeling and salience estimation. For latent semantic modeling, a neural generative model called Variational Auto-Encoders (VAEs) is employed to describe the observed sentences and the corresponding… (More)
