Text Summarization with Python Training Course

Course Code



14 hours (usually 2 days including breaks)


  • An understanding of Python programming (Python 2.7/3.3+)
  • An understanding of Python libraries in general


In Python Machine Learning, the Text Summarization feature is able to read the input text and produce a text summary. This capability is available from the command-line or as a Python API/Library. One exciting application is the rapid creation of executive summaries; this is particularly useful for organizations that need to review large bodies of text data before generating reports and presentations.

In this instructor-led, live training, participants will learn to use Python to create a simple application that auto-generates a summary of input text.

By the end of this training, participants will be able to:

  • Use a command-line tool that summarizes text.
  • Design and create Text Summarization code using Python libraries.
  • Evaluate three Python summarization libraries: sumy 0.7.0, pysummarization 1.0.4, readless 1.0.17


  • Developers
  • Data Scientists

Format of the course

  • Part lecture, part discussion, exercises and heavy hands-on practice
