Text Summarization Algorithm
- AKA: Summarization Algorithm.
- It can range from being an Extractive Text Summarization Algorithm to being an Abstraction-based Text Summarization Algorithm.
- It can range from being a Single-Document Summarization Algorithm to being a Multi-Document Summarization Algorithm.
- It can range from being a Heuristic Text Summarization Algorithm to being a Corpus-based Text Summarization Algorithm.
- It can range from being a Knowledge-Poor Text Summarization Algorithm to being a Knowledge-Rich Text Summarization Algorithm.
- It can be implemented in a Text Summarization System.
- See: Corpus-based Text Summarization Algorithm, Discourse Structure-based Text Summarization Algorithm, Knowledge-Rich Text Summarization Algorithm, Text Summarization Algorithm Performance Metric.

- ... Generally, there are two approaches to automatic summarization: extraction and abstraction. Extractive methods work by selecting a subset of existing words, phrases, or sentences in the original text to form the summary. In contrast, abstractive methods build an internal semantic representation and then use natural language generation techniques to create a summary that is closer to what a human might generate. Such a summary might contain words not explicitly present in the original. Research into abstractive methods is an increasingly important and active research area, however due to complexity constraints, research to date has focused primarily on extractive methods.
