Shopping was confined just to outdoor shopping few years ago when there were no websites for online shopping and no internet. But now Internet is available to everyone at fingertips with the advent of smartphones, tablets, laptops and even the cheaper rate to afford internet. This was the prime reason for the sudden booming of online shopping websites. Nowadays everyone loves online shopping. Everyone wishes to order products rather than buying directly from the shops. The primary thing a person will check before ordering the product is a review given by the customers who bought it already. It is becoming difficult for a user to go through various reviews of different products of a particular type and choose the best among them. Thus the need arises for the summarization of these reviews to the maximum extent possible, in order to make the user choose the best product from the whole lot. The process of minimizing the content of a given document without any loss in the meaning of the content is called as Text Summarization. It is grabbing attention of many NLP Researchers nowadays. Text Summarization is categorized based on Input type, Output type and Purpose. We will discuss in brief the various types of text summarization in detail in this paper. We propose seq2seq model for summarization. Its advanced version i.e LSTM is used along with the attention mechanism for increased accuracy. We used the latest word embedding model Conceptnet Numberbatch which is very much similar to GloVe but comparatively better than that. During classification we use 1D convolutional layer followed by max pooling layer, LSTM layer and then at the end by a fully connected layer.
