In science:

Its effect on MEAD is the subtraction of a redundancy penalty (Rs) for each sentence which overlaps with sentences that have higher SCORE values. The redundancy penalty is similar to the negative factor in the MMR formula [Carbonell and Goldstein, 1998].

We then modified the MEAD algorithm to include lead information as well as centroids (see Section 0).
Centroid-based summarization of multiple documents: sentence extraction, utility-based evaluation, and user studies
In this case, MEAD+Lead performed better than the Lead baseline in 41 cases. We are in the process of running experiments with other SCORE formulas.
Centroid-based summarization of multiple documents: sentence extraction, utility-based evaluation, and user studies
We presented a new multi-document summarizer, MEAD. It summarizes clusters of news articles automatically grouped by a topic detection system.
Centroid-based summarization of multiple documents: sentence extraction, utility-based evaluation, and user studies
MEAD uses information from the centroids of the clusters to select sentences that are most likely to be relevant to the cluster topic.
Centroid-based summarization of multiple documents: sentence extraction, utility-based evaluation, and user studies
We used a new utility-based technique, CBSU, for the evaluation of MEAD and of summarizers in general. We found that MEAD produces summaries that are similar in quality to the ones produced by humans.
Centroid-based summarization of multiple documents: sentence extraction, utility-based evaluation, and user studies
MEAD ’ s sentence scoring weights can be modified to produce summaries significantly better than the alternatives.
