Information is knowledge if it is rightly applied. Information is stored with different formats in databases but retrieving such from different documents has been a challenge. People want ready-made information for the purpose of decision making in minimal time and thereby crave for summary of information. Automatic summarization helps in mining data and delivering timely and cogent information to users. These systems attempt to address the issue of data mining using different summarization methods.
