I'd like to see a student test of this, where they enter their own thesis papers & rate how accurate the distillation, or TLDR version is. THERE would be some compelling marketing. Plus, that's another use case generally - see if your point comes across in your writing. Looking forward to developments, @seandokko

@elizabethhunker thanks for your input. It's definitely on the table. However, for now, I just want to focus on how I can make the algorithm better. Also, the user experience is streamlined for web articles. Generalizing the app to include pdfs and more inputs could lower the ease of use.

@seandokko It sounds like @elizabethhunker's idea would help to give you relatively quick and specific feedback. Could that data potentially help to narrow in on where/how to improve the algorithm?

@seandokko Sounds very interesting and could be a huge time save! For those of us who don't have an iPhone, could you please post / link some examples of articles and their summaries?

@iwozzy Sure! Link: http://www.sciencealert.com/goog... Summary: Google's engineers just achieved a milestone in quantum computing: they’ve produced the first completely scalable quantum simulation of a hydrogen molecule. Chemical reactions are quantum in nature, because they form highly entangled quantum superposition states. It's still early days though, and while we've described Google's hardware as a quantum computer for simplicity's sake, there's still an ongoing debate over whether we've cracked the quantum computing code just yet. Some say Google's machine is still a prototype, part-quantum computer rather than the real deal. Link: http://www.imaging-resource.com/... Summary: "But in 1946, Kodak customers started complaining about film they had bought coming out fogged. But the story doesn't end in 1946, with Kodak keeping a lid on atmospheric nuclear bomb testing by the government. The AEC capitulated, and agreed to give not just Kodak, but also the entire film industry, information about nuclear tests, weather patterns, predicted fallout and more. This was information that no one else was getting, certainly not the general public. The Government protected rolls of film, but not the lives of our kids. Link: http://www.digitaljournal.com/ne... Summary: Pope Francis said Sunday that Islam could not be equated with terrorism and warned Europe was pushing its young into the hands of extremists. \"It's not true and it's not correct (to say) Islam is terrorism,\" he told journalists aboard the papal plane during the return journey from a trip to Poland.

This would be nice if there was a standalone web version
