Today we’re launching a Summaries Tool on Artifact. In the spirit of this new feature, we will keep this post brief!

With this new update, you can generate article summaries by tapping “Aa” and then “Summarize” from the top menu on any article. This summary is generated by artificial intelligence and will drop in above the article. We believe this is a helpful tool to understand the high-level points of an article before diving in and reading the full text. It’s important to note that summaries don’t replace the utility of having the full text of the article. AI is powerful, but from time to time can make mistakes, so it’s important to verify the summary matches the article as you read the full text.

We’re excited about the power of AI, so we wanted to have a little fun and show the full power of this technology. To this end, you can change the style of the summary by selecting the “…” in the upper right corner of the summary. With this style selection, you can have it generate a simpler summary (”Explain like I’m five”), a summary made of only emoji, a summary as a poem, or a summary in the style of Gen Z. These styles are meant to be more entertaining than useful, but in our experience they provide for some fun results. We may add and change styles in the future.

Please let us know if you have any feedback through the settings menu on Profile!
