Application: Machine-learning based transcript summarization (Patent ID: US20230419051A1)

The patent filed by UnitedHealth Group Inc. describes a computer-implemented method for automatically generating a summary of a multi-party interaction using natural language processing. The method involves receiving a transcript of the interaction, identifying key sentences, generating contextual summaries based on these sentences, and creating reported contextual summaries from the perspective of specific participants. The process combines extractive and abstractive summarization techniques to produce comprehensive summaries that capture the essence of the interaction.

Furthermore, the patent outlines the use of machine-learning models such as paraphrasers, speech converters, and irrelevant classifiers to enhance the summarization process. These models help in generating more concise and relevant summaries by removing redundant phrases, irrelevant sentences, and hallucinated content. The generated summaries can be used to create call logs, assess performance, resolve issues, and take appropriate actions based on the content of the interaction. Overall, the method aims to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of predictive natural language summarization for multi-party interactions.
