Brevity Document Summarizer Toolkit

Businesses, libraries, and other organizations deal with hundreds and often thousands of unique documents. With the increasing number of documents it becomes more and more important for users to be able to tell at a glance what a document contains. The traditional method of doing this has been to hire a secretary to read through each document and type a one paragraph "abstract" or summary of the document. Many businesses find themselves unable to keep up with the sheer quantity of information that this method requires.

Enter Brevity.

Brevity allows you to swiftly and easily take any document and generate a summary of its contents. The summary can be as long or as short as you wish. For most documents Brevity provides astoundingly accurate summaries.

Key Benefits of Brevity


Toolkit Features

Brevity is designed with a simple API so that you can easily integrate it into your own document. Brevity works by comparing your document to a library of previous documents.  Using advanced technologies Brevity is able to determine what is significant in your document relative to this library of previous documents. This means that a paper for a physics journal isn't analyzed using the same criteria that a news story about a political campaign is. By comparing your document to specific libraries Brevity is able to generate very accurate results.

Because a huge library of documents would take up considerable space, Brevity stores the key information about these documents in a dictionary. Brevity comes with a utility that allows you to generate your own dictionaries. This lets you make sure that Brevity will use the types of documents you deal with to generate it's summaries.

The toolkit is designed to be as flexible as possible and can work with existing documents or data that you generate from within your applications. It allows you to parse your data anyway that you wish, allowing you to eliminate parts of documents not relevant to the summary. (i.e. titles, tables of contents, etc.)
