Text summarization is the task of generating a shorter version of a text while preserving the most important information. It's a hard machine learning task since it requires the model to understand the text and to identify the key points.
The OpenAI API provides a summarization endpoint that can be used to generate summaries of text. This endpoint takes a text as input and returns a model-generated summary as output. The text can be formatted as a single paragraph or as a multi-paragraph document.
We will show you how to use the OpenAI API to perform text summarization. In addition we will also show you some of the challenges of text summarization and how to overcome them.
