Information Extraction and Summarization: Domain Independence through Focus Types

McKeown, Kathleen; Kan, Min-yen

We show how information extraction (IE) and summarization can be merged in a sequential pipeline, resulting in anew approach to domain-independent summarization. IE finds the document's terms and entities, that when processed by the methods shown, result in a more informative treatment of the document's topics.
