This paper presents G-FLOW, a novel system for coherent extractive multi-document summarization (MDS. [...] Key Method This graph enables G-FLOW to estimate the coherence of a candidate summary. We evaluate G-FLOW on Mechanical Turk, and find that it generates dramatically better summaries than an extractive summarizer based on a pipeline of state-of-the-art sentence selection and reordering components, underscoring the value of our joint model.Expand
Exploring Text Links for Coherent Multi-Document Summarization
TLDR
A performance comparison reveals that the summaries generated by the proposed system achieve comparable results in terms of the ROUGE metric, and show improvements in readability by human evaluation. Expand
Readable and Coherent MultiDocument Summarization
TLDR
This paper presents a holistic, multi-document summarization approach which takes care of the content coverage, sentence ordering, maintenance of topical coherence, topical order and inter-sentence structural relationships and introduced a novel concept of a Local Coherent Unit. Expand
Leveraging Graph to Improve Abstractive Multi-Document Summarization
TLDR
A neural abstractive multi-document summarization (MDS) model which can leverage well-known graph representations of documents, to more effectively process multiple input documents and produce abstractive summaries is developed. Expand
Hierarchical Summarization: Scaling Up Multi-Document Summarization
TLDR
SUMMA produces a hierarchy of relatively short summaries, in which the top level provides a general overview and users can navigate the hierarchy to drill down for more details on topics of interest. Expand
Towards Abstractive Multi-Document Summarization Using Submodular Function-Based Framework, Sentence Compression and Merging
We propose a submodular function-based summarization system which integrates three important measures namely importance, coverage, and non-redundancy to detect the important sentences for theExpand
A Salience Analysis of Discourse Graph-based Multi-Document Summarization
We propose and evaluate the use of discourse relationship graphs as effective representations of document clusters for multi-document summarization (MDS). By implementing a straightforward PageRankExpand
Towards Cohesive Extractive Summarization through Anaphoric Expression Resolution
TLDR
The solution presented attempts to improve the legibility and cohesion of the generated summaries through coreference resolution through a post-processing step that binds dangling coreference to the most important entity in a given coreference chain. Expand
SummPip: Unsupervised Multi-Document Summarization with Sentence Graph Compression
TLDR
SummPip is proposed: an unsupervised method for multi-document summarization, in which the original documents are converted to a sentence graph, then spectral clustering is applied to obtain multiple clusters of sentences, and finally compress each cluster to generate the final summary. Expand
Hierarchical Transformers for Multi-Document Summarization
TLDR
A neural summarization model which can effectively process multiple input documents and distill Transformer architecture with the ability to encode documents in a hierarchical manner is developed. Expand
Learning-Based Single-Document Summarization with Compression and Anaphoricity Constraints
TLDR
A discriminative model for single-document summarization that integrally combines compression and anaphoricity constraints that outperforms prior work on both ROUGE as well as on human judgments of linguistic quality. Expand

A Hybrid Hierarchical Model for Multi-Document Summarization
TLDR
This paper forms extractive summarization as a two step learning problem building a generative model for pattern discovery and a regression model for inference based on the lexical and structural characteristics of the sentences. Expand
A bottom-up approach to sentence ordering for multi-document summarization
TLDR
The average continuity, an automatic evaluation measure of sentence ordering in a summary, is introduced and its appropriateness for this task is investigated. Expand
Towards CST-enhanced summarization
TLDR
It is shown that CST-enhanced summaries outperform their unmodified counterparts using the relative utility evaluation metric and that the effect of a CST relationship on an extract depends on its type. Expand

TLDR
A novel context inference-based approach for sentences ordering in mult i-document summarization application that outperforms the state-of-the-art ones on DUC2004 corpus. Expand
Multi-Document Summarization via the Minimum Dominating Set
TLDR
It is shown that four well-known summarization tasks including generic, query-focused, update, and comparative summarization can be modeled as different variations derived from the proposed framework. Expand
Multi-document summarization by cluster/prole relevance and redundancy removal
We describe a sentence extraction system that produces two sorts of multi-document summaries: the rst is a general-purpose summary of a cluster of related documents while the second is anExpand
Generating Indicative-Informative Summaries with SumUM
TLDR
SumUM is a text summarization system that takes a raw technical text as input and produces an indicative informative summary that motivates the topics, describes entities, and defines concepts. Expand
Sentence Ordering in Multidocument Summarization
TLDR
An integrated strategy for ordering information is presented, combining constraints from chronological order of events and cohesion, derived from empirical observations based on experiments asking humans to order information. Expand
Exploring Content Models for Multi-Document Summarization
TLDR
The final model, HierSum, utilizes a hierarchical LDA-style model (Blei et al., 2004) to represent content specificity as a hierarchy of topic vocabulary distributions and yields state-of-the-art ROUGE performance and in pairwise user evaluation strongly outperforms Toutanova et al. (2007)'s state of theart discriminative system. Expand
Coherent Citation-Based Summarization of Scientific Papers
TLDR
This work presents an approach for producing readable and cohesive citation-based summaries and shows that the proposed approach outperforms several baselines in terms of both extraction quality and fluency. Expand
