Research Project Title:

Designing Software to Summarize Discussions

abstract:Browsing through thousands of sentences in a forum or discussion can be really difficult if you just want a high level summary of the topic. The goal of my project is to work on an existing software that aims to summarize discussions such as forums while also keeping performance in mind. This type of technology would benefit a lot of people by extracting important information efficiently.

"I am participating in SuperUROP because I have an interest in AI and software development, and this opportunity will give me a chance to explore the field while also giving me an opportunity to think about the possibilities of a project for my MEng. I'm really excited to work on this project because it is still under development and I want to be part of a team that helps to make it into a success."
