Abstract or Description

Our prototype automatic title generation system inspired by statistical machine-translation approaches [1] treats the document title like a translation of the document. Titles can be generated without extracting words from the document. A large corpus of documents with human-assigned titles is required for training title "translation" models. On an f1 evaluation score our approach outperformed another approach based on Bayesian probability estimates [7].
