Summarize Slideshow Presentations

Available on GitHub.

This script will use the Extract Text algorithm and the Summarizer algorithm to show how to scrape and summarize the text from a SlideShare presentation. For the full blog post related to this recipe, see Automatic Slideshare Text Summarization.

Getting Started

Install the Algorithmia client from PyPi:

  install algorithmia 

You’ll also need a free Algorithmia account, which includes 5,000 free credits a month – more than enough to get started with crawling, extracting, and analyzing web data.

Sign up here, and then grab your API key.

Find this line in the script:

 
client = Algorithmia.client("YOUR_API_KEY")
 

and add in your API key.
