Metadata based Contextual summarizer for Technical Conversations in Public forums

In recent years, the task of sequence to sequence based neural abstractive||summarization has gained a lot of attention. Many novel strategies have been||used to improve the saliency, human readability, and consistency of these models,||resulting in high-quality summaries.
