CLAIMS

1. A computer-implemented method for providing a human-machine interface for collaborative summarization of a group conversation, the method comprising:

presenting the group conversation in the human-machine interface;

receiving first user input by way of the human-machine interface, the first user input comprising a request to label an excerpt of the group conversation with a discourse act note corresponding to a discourse act;

responsive to receiving the first user input, adding the excerpt and the discourse act note to a summary of the group conversation;

receiving second user input by way of the human-machine interface, the second user input comprising a request to view the summary of the group conversation; and

responsive to receiving the second user input, presenting the summary of the group conversation in the human-machine interface.

2. The computer-implemented method of claim 1, wherein the discourse act note indicates that the excerpt of the group conversation specifies an action, an answer, a decision, an idea, or a question.

3. The computer-implemented method of claim 1, wherein the first user input comprises a sequence of keystrokes corresponding to the discourse act note or selection of a graphic image corresponding to the discourse act note.

4. The computer-implemented method of claim 1, wherein the first user input is received prior to receiving the excerpt or following receipt of the excerpt.

5. The computer-implemented method of claim 1, wherein excerpts in the summary of the group conversation are grouped by a corresponding discourse act.

6. An apparatus, comprising:

one or more processors; and

at least one computer storage medium having computer executable instructions stored thereon which, when executed by the one or more processors, cause the apparatus to:

receive first user input by way of a human-machine interface, the first user input comprising a request to label an excerpt of a group conversation with a discourse act note;

responsive to receiving the first user input, adding the excerpt and the discourse act note to a summary of the group conversation;

receiving second user input by way of the human-machine interface, the second user input comprising a request to view the summary of the group

conversation; and

responsive to receiving the second user input, present the summary of the group conversation in the human-machine interface.

7. The apparatus of claim 6, wherein the discourse act note indicates that the excerpt of the group conversation specifies an action, an answer, a decision, an idea, a custom discourse act, or a question.

8. The apparatus of claim 6, wherein the first user input comprises a sequence of keystrokes corresponding to the discourse act note or selection of a graphic image corresponding to the discourse act note.

9. The apparatus of claim 6, wherein the first user input is received following receipt of the excerpt.

10. The apparatus of claim 6, wherein excerpts in the summary of the group conversation are grouped by a corresponding discourse act.

11. At least one computer storage medium having computer executable instructions stored thereon which, when executed by the one or more processors, cause the apparatus to:

receive first user input by way of a human-machine interface, the first user input comprising a request to tag an excerpt of a group conversation with a discourse act note corresponding to a discourse act;

adding the excerpt and the discourse act note to a summary of the group conversation;

receive a request to view the summary of the group conversation; and

present the summary of the group conversation in the human-machine interface.

12. The at least one computer storage medium of claim 11 , wherein the discourse act note indicates that the excerpt of the group conversation specifies an action, an answer, a decision, an idea, or a question.

13. The at least one computer storage medium of claim 11 , wherein the first user input comprises a sequence of keystrokes corresponding to the discourse act note or a selection of a graphic image corresponding to the discourse act note.

14. The at least one computer storage medium of claim 11, wherein excerpts in the summary of the group conversation are grouped by a corresponding discourse act.

15. The at least one computer storage medium of claim 11 , wherein the summary of the group conversation can be edited, referenced, or sent to a second group conversation using the human-machine interface.
