Abstract or Description
Our prototype automatic title generation system inspired by statistical machine-translation approaches  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 .
