In order to overcome these issues, we reconsider the task of summarization from a human-centered perspective.
Bayesian Active Learning has had significant impact to various NLP problems, but nevertheless it's application to text summarization has been explored very little.
This method allows us to improve summarization performance by simply using the median of multiple stochastic summaries.
With this approach we can decompose the problem of long document summarization into smaller and simpler problems, reducing computational complexity and creating more training examples, which at the same time contain less noise in the target summaries compared to the standard approach.

We propose SUSIE, a novel summarization method that can work with state-of-the-art summarization models in order to produce structured scientific summaries for academic articles.
