Query-Focused Summaries or Query-Biased Summaries?
In the context of the Document Understanding Conferences, the task of Query-Focused Multi-Document Summarization is intended to improve agreement in content among humangenerated model summaries. Query-focus also aids the automated summarizers in directing the summary at specific topics, which may result in better agreement with these model summaries. However, while query focus correlates with performance, we show that highperforming automatic systems produce summaries with disproportionally higher query term density than human summarizers do. Experimental evidence suggests that automatic systems heavily rely on query term occurrence and repetition to achieve good performance.
