📜 TLDR: Extreme Summarization of Scientific Documents

We introduce TLDR generation, a new form of extreme summarization, for scientific papers. TLDR generation involves high source compression and requires expert background knowledge and understanding of complex domain-specific language. To facilitate study on this task, we introduce SciTLDR, a new multi-target dataset of 5.4K TLDRs over 3.2K papers. …

Imagine a world where universities are ranked by their willingness to openly share knowledge and collaborate.
