Project description

Abstractive BERT-based Text Summarizer

A BERT-based summarizer, centered towards a simple API: some text in, a summary out, both strings. Also at as package sumbert.

or if you want ot play with the code, after cloning this, and going into the resulting folder, install as an editable package with:

pip3 install -e .


$ python3 -i
>>> from sumbert import summarize
>>> text= """... your favorite story ..."""
>>> print(summarize(text))

This package is designed as a simple API for an otherwise fairy intricate set of components.


The code is derived from the bertabs submodule in the HuggingFace transformers package at
