The creators of the Allen Institute for Artificial Intelligence (AI2)'s free Semantic Scholar scientific search engine have unveiled software called TLDR (too long, didn't read) that automatically produces one-sentence abstracts of research papers.
For now, the tool generates sentences exclusively for the 10 million computer science papers catalogued by Semantic Scholar; AI2's Dan Weld said papers from other fields also will be summarized once the software has been refined.
Weld said preliminary tests indicate TLDR helps readers sort through search results faster than viewing titles and abstracts, especially on cellphones.
The software utilizes deep neural networks trained on vast text datasets, including tens of thousands of research papers matched to their titles, so the network could learn to generate concise sentences.
