Meeting Summarization Overview

Dynamic summarization is a technique for displaying textual documents and then allowing users to specifiy and alter levels of summarization in real time. We demonstrate two different approaches to overlaying the summary information:

  • Word Excision – here as the user requests more summarization, unimportant words are removed from the transcript and replaced with a full stop.
  • Word Shading (pictured) – here the unimportant words are shaded. Thus unimportant words are grey whilst the important words remain in black. Insignificant words are much lighter than more significant ones, so a word like 'and' will be white but something like 'budget' would be much darker.
  • User Benefits

    Users can obtain summaries of meetings based on analysis of automatically generated transcripts.
