What is Text Summarization?

Text Summarization API is a technology that uses Natural Language Processing (NLP) and Machine Learning algorithms to automatically generate a condensed version of a longer piece of text, preserving its key information and main points. The API takes as input a text document or article, and outputs a shorter summary that conveys the most important information contained in the original text.
