Extreme Summarization


This is a demo of Topic-Aware Convolutional Neural Networks for Extreme Summarization.

We compare outputs of three different systems: LEAD (first sentence in the article), ConvS2S (convolutional sequence -to-sequence model) and Topic-ConvS2S (topic-aware convolutional sequence-to-sequence model).

Our newly collected dataset and the source code for our generator can be found on github.

See here for current results on the XSum dataset we created.


To read more about XSum, see the paper that can be downloaded here.
