WikiSummarizer is a Web-based application specializing in automatic summarization of Wikipedia articles. Automatic summarization is the creation of a shortened version of a text by a computer program. The result is a summary that presents the most important points of the original text. A summary is a shorter version of the original information. It highlights the major points from the much longer article. The purpose is to help the reader to quickly get the essential points in a short period of time. WikiSummarizer automatically summarizes the Wikipedia articles. The blending of visualization with summarization, knowledge browsing, mind mapping provides you with a wide range of means to explore relevant content. All the summaries are stored in the WikiSummarizer knowledge base. In fact when we are summarizing, we are zipping through the whole content, homing in on the important chunks.

Slowly they work their way upward to a second-story landing, where they are stopped again by a steel grille. After a long wait, a lean woman in a sequined red sari, three children in tow, has finally made it to the head of the line.
