Text Summarization is compressing the source text into a shorter version preserving its information content and overall meaning. It is very complicated for human beings to manually summarize large documents of text. Text summarization plays an important role in the area of natural language processing and text mining. Many approaches use statistics and machine learning techniques to extract sentences from documents. This paper presents an new approach for concept-based automatic multi-document summarization using machine learning.
