Abstract

Due to the problem of information overloading, automatic text summarization is becoming more and more necessary. This paper proposes a strategy for Chinese news discourse summarization based on veins theory. This method can produce a summary of an original text without requiring its full semantic interpretation, but instead relying on the discourse structure.
