We present a system that incorporates agent- based technology and natural language genera- tion to address the problem of natural language summarization of live sources of data. The in- put to the system includes newswire and on-fine databases and ontologies. The output consists of short summaries that convey information se- lected to fit the user's interests, the most recent news updates, and historical information. The system is under development.
