ExB Text Summarizer
|Stefan Thomas, Christian Beutenmuller, Xose de la Puente, Robert Remus and Stefan Bordag|
We present our state of the art multilingual text summarizer capable of single as well as multi-document text summarization. The algorithm is based on repeated application of TextRank on a sentence similarity graph, a bag of words model for sentence similarity and a number of linguistic pre- and post-processing steps using standard NLP tools. We submitted this algorithm for two different tasks of the MultiLing 2015 summarization challenge: Multilingual Singledocument Summarization and Multilingual Multi-document Summarization.
