SciSummary is a cutting-edge AI-driven summarization tool designed to make digesting scientific articles easier. It enables users to quickly and accurately understand complex scientific articles without having to read the full text.

To use the service, users can email a text, a link, or even attach a PDF and within minutes they will receive a summary in their inbox. The service is powered by a custom-tuned GPT-3 model that learns as it goes, with a team of PhDs analyzing requested summaries and guiding the training of the model.

It is currently in a public beta, and users are encouraged to rate their summaries. SciSummary was founded in 2023 with the mission of making digesting scientific articles easier.

good tool but be mindful: if you want it to expand on subjects that aren't covered in the inputed article, it can derail the summary and make some genuine leaps in logic, just to give the result you asked. Careful on your Expand prompts

I'm still testing the tool yet it looks very promising. I tested it with a 5.5k words Academic text that I had previously red. I tested the Key points feature, it does work!
