Presentation title: 
Summarization Across Languages, Media Types and Domains
Presentation description: 
We will present a powerful summarization toolset and solution, based on novel, open source, natural language processing methods and tools, applicable over many languages and many sources. The presented solution, based on mature research results and a number of existing commercial use cases, allows: easy definition of a selected domain of interest; data crawling and fetching from a variety of sources; efficient parametric summarization over curated (news) texts and free, social media texts; automatic, customizable classification; real-time personalization of results. All these powerful tools are complemented by tailor-made, simple workflows, to maximize the simplicity and efficiency of the solution even for non-expert users.
