I'm looking to create a sentence extraction program, so a program that aims to get the most important sentences from a body of text. The first step for me is to try to evaluate what characteristics important sentences share, and how they are different from non-important sentences.
As such, I am looking for a corpus of documents which have the most important sentences somehow marked. I already have some metrics in mind, and I would like to do inference on how important each of those metrics are in distinguishing the interesting from the filler, and so need some data.
Edit: I believe that it defeats the purpose to use the results of a different sentence extraction program, and am instead looking for the results of human work.
