Enhancing N-Gram-based Summary Evaluation Using Information Content and a Taxonomy

In this paper we propose a novel information-theoretic metricfor automatic summary evaluation when model summaries are availableas in the setting of the AESOP task of the Update Summarization trackof the Text Analysis Conference (TAC). The metric is based on theconcept of information content operationalized by using a taxonomy.Hereby, we present and discuss the results obtained at TAC 2009.
