Cross-Lingual Document Summarization

Yifu Qiu (Ph.D. Student)

Automatic document summarization is an area in Natural Language Processing focused on taking input documents and outputting a concise summary of them. Such summaries allow potential readers to sift through a more significant amount of information in a shorter time and focus on the most critical content. Recent work in this area mostly targets content in English. We will use and develop the available tools for summarization so that it can happen in other languages, possibly leveraging English resources.
