An extension for on-line news summarization

Summarization Extension for Google Chrome

Nowadays, with the huge and growing amount of information available in the Web and the sparse time to read and grasp it, manual analysis of the conveyed documents becomes almost impossible. For this reason, multi-document summarization has become an important area.

The extension developed is capable of handling on-line news, through the adaptation of classical techniques of the automatic summarization field. Summaries are generated from a specific search on Google News. Those summaries try to put together all the information sought by the user, with the possibility to add more news or subtract some from the summary to fit in the user's need.
