In this paper we present a creative system for producing news headlines based on well-known expressions. The algorithm is composed of several steps that identify keywords from a news article, select an appropriate well-known expression and modify it via word replacement or insertion to produce a novel headline, using state-of-the-art natural language processing and linguistic creativity techniques. A simple web-interface abstracts the technical details from users, and lets them focus on the task of producing creative headlines.

Abstract

In this paper we present a creative system for producing news headlines based on well-known expressions. The algorithm is composed of several steps that identify keywords from a news article, select an appropriate well-known expression and modify it via word replacement or insertion to produce a novel headline, using state-of-the-art natural language processing and linguistic creativity techniques. A simple web-interface abstracts the technical details from users, and lets them focus on the task of producing creative headlines.
