Developing learning strategies for topic-based summarization
Most up-to-date well-behaved topic-based summarization systems are built upon the extractive framework. They score the sentences based on the associated features by manually assigning or experimentally tuning the weights of the features. In this paper, we discuss how to develop learning strategies in order to obtain the optimal feature weights automatically, which can be used for assigning a sound score to a sentence characterized with a set of features. The two fundamental issues are about training data and learning models. To save the costly manual annotation time and effort, we construct the training data by labeling the sentence with a “true” score calculated according to human summaries. The Support Vector Regression (SVR) model is then used to learn how to relate the “true” score of the sentence to its features. Once the relations have been mathematically modeled, SVR is able to predict the “estimated” score for any given sentence. The evaluations by ROUGE-2 criterio...
