What does SummaryEngine do?

It summarizes written texts. You give it an article, blog page, web page, or other digital text, and it will provide a summary in bullet point format.

What languages are supported?

Only English for now.

What file formats are supported for input?

SummaryEngine accepts text, html, Microsoft Word, and PDF formats. It also accepts URLs to web pages.

When will this service be available?

We are currently beta testing the service and hope to make it available in the second half of 2019.

How much will it cost?

The service will be free for most uses. However, to avoid abuse, we do limit summaries to 20 per day, and we limit the size of documents/articles to 5000 words.

What is the paid service then?

In the future, we plan to offer a service that allows the integration of SummaryEngine in any web page using embedded JavaScript code. This will summarize the contents of any web page conaining the embedded code for users viewing that page. This will be a paid subscription service for website owners who need this service such as news websites or avid bloggers.

How accurate are the summaries?

For trials until now, the summaries are precise 95% of the times. The remaining 5% are still very good, but may lack a 1 or more important details.

Are there limitations on the type of text?

The purpose of SummaryEngine is to summaries general text-based documents. Scientific articles that are rich in formulas, graphs, or tables are not ideal and do not result in good summaries.
