MeaningCloud Automatic Summarization API - Developers

The MeaningCloud Automatic Summarization API allows you to summarize the meaning of a document, extracting its most relevant sentences. Use it to make your processes more efficient by letting it help you decide which documents are the most interesting without having to read all their contents.

This API locates the most relevant phrases in a document and builds a synopsis with them, so that you can quickly understand its ideas without having to read it in its entirety. You can specify the number of phrases you want the abstract to contain. This API is language independent so you can use it with texts/documents in any language.
