SUMMA - A software library for development of text summarization systems and applications (Ref.TEC0090)

SUMMA is a text summarization toolkit which follows the architectural precepts of the GATE framework therefore providing much needed functionality in the form of language and processing resources for composition of practical summarization applications.

Automatic Text  Summarization can help extract, merge, and condense what is important from a stream of textual information reducing information overload. There is no implemented summarizer which can summarize all types of document, therefore the need for a toolkit which allows composition to customize specific summatization applications.
