Science of Summarization. Agolo set out with a simple goal. To create the world’s best summaries. That meant having summaries that fit each user’s need, that were easy to read, complete and ready for the future. As data scientists, we believe that without great summaries - and the ability to synthesize vast amounts of information, we will miss the big picture, not solve the greatest problems, nor make the most of every opportunity
