Summarizing Definition from Wikipedia
Wikipedia provides a wealth of knowledge, where the first sentence, infobox (and relevant sentences), and even the entire document of a wiki article could be considered as diverse versions of summaries (definitions) of the target topic. We explore how to generate a series of summaries with various lengths based on them. To obtain more reliable associations between sentences, we introduce wiki concepts according to the internal links in Wikipedia. In addition, we develop an extended document concept lattice model to combine wiki concepts and non-textual features such as the outline and infobox. The model can concatenate representative sentences from non-overlapping salient local topics for summary generation. We test our model based on our annotated wiki articles which topics come from TREC-QA 2004-2006 evaluations. The results show that the model is effective in summarization and definition QA.
