This week, we had the pleasure of hosting an online talk with the team from Agolo, an NYC-based startup with a great product that automatically summarizes articles (and can even generate new titles for a group of summarized articles).
During the event, we discussed:
- why summarization has suddenly become interesting
- how different industries are applying the technology
- how algorithms work (LDA, word2vec, and recurrent neural networks)
- related applications (realtime translation, speech recognition)
- what’s next in the field
Check out the recording below!
If you’re interested in this topic, our Summarization report explores the technical details discussed during the event in much greater depth. The report explains the algorithms we used to build Brief, a prototype that summarizes articles. Write us at email@example.com to learn more!
