Translate from multiple paragraphs to sentence


I am working with a homegrown language that distills down ideas into a short sentence. In short, it takes several paragraphs and ‘translates’ them into a few tokens.

I’m wondering if there is a good NMT approach that might work for this. I was even thinking of just using Bertmulticlassification. But I am also trying to see if NMT is appropriate. I know this introduces fairly serious alignment issues, but was hoping someone could point me in a direction to start.

I think you’re looking for summarization tasks.
Look for “extractive summarization” and “abstractive summarization”.

Thanks, that makes sense and was the other angle I thought to pursue.
