AI system helps to summarize classical literary works | Digital Trends Spanish

OpenAI, a nonprofit artificial intelligence research company, created a system capable of generating “reasonable” summaries of entire books.

From the company they explain that the technique used is based on what they call “recursive decomposition of tasks” together with a reinforcement made from human comments.

This procedure consists of dividing a complex task into simpler ones, for example, summarizing a long text in short fragments.

To exemplify their method, OpenAI showed a summary of Lewis Carroll’s classic Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland (Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland).

Thus, this work goes from 26,449 words to different summarized fragments, totaling just over 6,000 words. The team in charge recognizes that the abstract can be as long as 136 words.

Researchers have also tested this system in other classics such as Romeo and Juliet, by William Shakespeare, and Pride and Prejudiceby Jane Austen.

The authors hope that, with this procedure, anyone can read the abstract and get a general idea of ​​the content of the book.

In OpenAI they ensure that their system has an accuracy of six out of seven with respect to humans who have read the book 5 percent of the time, and five out of seven in relation to people who have read the book 15 percent of the time .

As a way to show this progress, OpenAI published a series of book summaries in its website. Now you will be able to know what all those classic works are about that you have not had time to read yet.
