Abstract : The SUMMARY expert system was developed to summarize (pick out particular pieces of information) Navy Casualty Report (CASREP) narrative sections. This task of summarization requires several steps which we will describe here, in a cursory manner. The first step is to obtain a normalized parse of each sentence in the message. The second step is to transform each parse into an Information Format. These information formats are then passed to the SUMMARY expert system where rules representing general linguistic rules of summarization, domain-specific rules of classification, and rules of emphasis on particular types of information are applied to the formats. The format(s) with the highest emphasis (score) is then chosen as the summary. In this report, the concern lies in the third phase of this process where summaries are chosen by the SUMMARY expert system.
