Information Salience

Large collections of documents create a cumbersome comprehension task. To lighten the load, interactive computational techniques can create visual summaries of these documents. We conducted a study comparing document highlights from humans to document highlights from a salience algorithm. We are exploring interactive computational techniques identified from the study results as well as the modified salience algorithm within an interactive tool. We developed a salience tool that visualizes highlights based on percentages of users who found sentences salient.
